Stole this from Samantha Emanuel’s facebook page…
You know that awesome Martha Graham-esque Google page video from yesterday? This one?
This guy has created more stuff.
I’m telling you, you must watch this. Now.
And what’s even more fascinating is that here you can hear the artist talk about his inspiration and see how the video was made.
Rough version of the documentary:
Wow. I swear this guy has no bones.
I remember seeing this with my marching band in high school and bawling my eyes out in the audience. In my mind, there is no better musical interpretation of what it feels like to lose something. This is raw, powerful, and terribly beautiful loss.
I read somewhere that to get into character, the trumpet player would imagine that this was the last time he could ever play the trumpet in his life.
I am so impressed by the recent work I have seen of Zoe Jakes, Kami Liddle, Liz Strong, and Rose Harden.

There are no words to describe how beautiful this is:
Check out Unmata’s High Fashion set from Tribal Fest. I learned portions of these choreos in Sacramento, and it gave me a new level of respect for how hard those ladies work.

In my opinion, Sadie is one of the most technically precise dancers around. This drum solo is one of the most impressive I’ve ever seen.
…And she’s a Midwesterner!
Merry Christmas, everyone!
