It has been a while since I have run across a "dance" performance on YouTube that has truly wowed me, but this really got me excited! It's such a simple concept that could easily be lame, but the dancer's precision and feeling for the "stage" made it a transcendent experience for me. If you click on the video below, there's a brief intro that shows some of the more dramatic moments in the piece. If you would rather skip the spoilers and jump in at the 42s mark, click here.



And then there are FKA Twigs' dance videos, many of which I find quite transgressive in addition to standing out artistically. In the videos, there is often a theme of implied violence or raging passion that somehow remains contained/under tension despite obvious desire to take it further. Her stuff definitely floats my boat!

Ache is one of her earliest works... note the societally ubiquitous "23" ;).

Wet Wipez is more recent and has a larger scope for sure.

I love her music for both as well!
