The original idea was to make each dancer represent with their movements one individual layer/instrument of the song. However, the dancers were so talented that it made me realize that the real core and soul of this project was to portray the song through the pure canvas of the human body without any rules or limitations.
The idea is to show the essence of the song not just through traditional dancing techniques but also through the mere movement of body parts that are often overlooked; then combining all of these individual movements to create a complete somatic piece of expression.
To tell a message through somatic body movement can be an abstract task. It’s up to the interpretation of each individual to understand the message that the dancers ought to express. The dancer’s choreography and editing cuts of the film were done with the intention to focus on the internal experience of the movement rather than the external appearance of it.
