Other than the hiccup of awesome that was my thesis piece (because IT IS AWESOME), I've been burnt out for a while. I am so gad that my friend Kayte emailed me a link to this amazing video, this dance for camera... Valtari. It takes the haunting melodic strains from one of my favorite bands, Sigur Ros, combines it with a sensual love story, and the beauty of modern dance... more specifically a piece, that seems to have possibly been created using contact improvisation, which is something that I really love to do, but never get a chance to really go for it.
I am just excited to dance again. And soon. I can't believe I'm saying this, but can school start again soon?
This piece was choreographed by Sibi Larbi Cherkaoui, and the film was written and directed by Christian Larson.
