For the most part I wonder how these girls were able to breath? Thanks to Nowness.

Both the maker of this video Jamie Isbell and the potter Sue Paraskeva appreciate what dedicated attention to detail can produce. The video is a beautiful sensitive study of Sue Paraskeva’s steadied skill and minute expression through closely shot and multi-edited footage of her creative process. Thanks to Fan The Fire for the post.

How have I not seen this before? Amazing stuff from 2006 by Robert Seidel.

Last night I watched Pina. And I wish I’d made the effort to catch it in the cinema in 3D. It was really a wonderful, poetic and touching film. And it reminded me that long ago whilst flicking through the channels on TV I caught a glimpse of the first video below. There I remained transfixed by the entire Edouard Lock piece Amelia. Danced by La La La Human Steps. The music is by David Lang and it is just so stunning, sometimes I think it’s going to steal the show.

I find this video mesmerising and I have watched it whilst playing different pieces of music and it works every time. The creator, Loie Fuller appears to have been a very interesting and creative character. Her influence can still be seen in the work of Jodi Sperling in the second video. The fabric reminds me of various paper work I have posted in the past and it also reminded me of one of my favourite magical scenes from Singing in the Rain. Seen in the third video below, the statuesque Cyd Charisse. No fancy CGI needed…
