Dancers In Slow Motion

Let’s begin the week with some beautiful dancing slowed down. Two very different dance styles, one filmmaking technique, so we can see in detail what dancers can do with their bodies.

Which of course reminds me of David Michalek’s Slow Dancing installation. If you think these are impressive, you should see dancers projected in HD on the sides of buildings. I had an opportunity to see the installation at Lincoln Center a few years ago. It was amazing to witness  a sea of people basically having picnics around the Lincoln Center fountain watching the projections late into the night. Do yourself a favor, find a dance theater near you and go see a live dance performance.
