Marion Motin in Koki Nakano’s “External Cephalic Vision”

July 8, 2022

Watch French choreographer and performer Marion Motin dance on the coast of Calpe, Spain, in pianist Koki Nakano’s latest release “External Cephalic Vision.” Joined by her son, Nayati, Motin harnesses a playful atmosphere by chasing him around the colorful architectural setting of La Muralla Roja. Her intense focus and sharp dynamics are contrasted by her son’s carefree movement, until the two come together in heartwarming moments of connectivity. Nakano traditionally uses dance as inspiration for his music and believes “there’s no sound without movement, there’s no movement without sound. The two are inseparable.”
