marc-antoine locatelli brings us a beautiful blend of art and technology in his video nuance.  the film pairs up dancer lucas boirat with lights of various shapes and sizes.  the way boirat & the different lights play off of each other’s movements coupled with locatelli’s sharp use of black-white contrast create a dazzling experience for viewers.  check it out and let me know what you think.  via laughing squid.

choreographed dancing underwater is cool enough on its own, but the mother-son dynamic makes this video even more graceful.  details via director conor horgan:

A short dance film, written and performed by David Bolger (choreographer and artistic director of CoisCéim Dance Theatre, Dublin) along with his 76-year-old mother, Madge Bolger. The film was shot in the Marian College swimming pool, where Madge worked as a swimming instructor for many years and where she taught David to swim.

No one ever told me I couldn’t, so I had no fear, just so much hope. I just went into it loving what I do and saying I’m going to work hard to prove myself…I’ve realized I don’t fit the mold and I have to remember that it’s OK not to follow others’ path, because there really is no one that I am like.
