Dd Video Countdown for National Dance Day: 15 of 20/20

 In Dance on Screen, Events, Uncategorized

Music video Monday: Christian Larson was one of a dozen filmmakers given complete artistic freedom to surprise the band sigur ros with a video for their new album Valtari.

In Larson’s own words:

“i’ve always been inspired by dance, so i wanted to tell a short story with dialogue through movement, without anyone saying anything. sidi larbi cherkaoui’s extraordinary choreography created this unique communication between the dancers james o’hara & nicola leahey. larbi’s way of working with flexibility played as an interesting contrast to the harsh environment in which matthias montero’s pure and ethereal style of cinematography allowed an intimate portrait of the couple.”
