About finding a new form: dance video with (dis)appearing dancers

music, dancing, creativityPosted by Aug 21, 2013 20:25

Sometimes you encounter a dance group, or some other artistic group, that has gotten a new idea that opens up a whole new type of expression, a new form so to say. A little bit like when Jazz was discovered, or when Beatles released their "Sgt Pepper" album, and everyone realized that you can make an album where you are not only recording what the band is playing on normal instruments at a single occasion, but that you on an album can create new mixed sounds "off-stage". Here is a dance group that has done that: to have suits whose lights can be turned on and off, to make individual dancers appear or disappear. After 2 seconds seeing the video, you realize that: wow, why did nobody think of this before? And then you know that you are going to see many tricks you never saw before: because that simple idea opens up a whole new landscape of possibilites. Enjoy :)
