NOWNESS - Benjamin Millipied x Philip Glass
I’m really glad my slightly ridiculous obsession with finding cool dance related things on the web was helpful to both my current and previous internships today. But seriously, this short film from The NOWNESS is magnificent. The choreography, filming, dancing, and music are all beautiful. I was already obsessed with Benjamin Millipied’s choreography, but this is just stunning. (Pause while I take a moment to remember watching Ballet Geneve perform Closer, a duet he choreographed, at the Gala. Also, pause while I think about how I had trouble taking photos because I had tears streaming down my cheeks.) And I’ve written a few times about how much I love Philip Glass’s compositions. (Again, pause while I dream myself back to the Gala and marvel at taking photographs of his hands on the piano.)
The section with the reflection of Craig’s hands in the mirror is my favorite.
(Also, thank you to Kirin and Michael for introducing me to the absolutely gorgeous NOWNESS short films.)
