Whether he's choreographing bizarre music videos for Sia, an immersive dance show on the High Line or soundtrack-synchronized moves for the summer blockbuster Baby Driver, Ryan Heffington's dances keep popping up in unexpected places. His latest project? Choreographing a "dance story" for Opening Ceremony during New York Fashion Week.
If you're wondering what a "dance story" is, you're not the only one. According to the recent announcement on Opening Ceremony's Instagram, it sounds pretty cool, though: For starters, the live dance event, called Changers, will be written and directed by none other than Spike Jonze (Think Her, Where the Wild Things Are, Being John Malkovich). It won't be your typical runway show—the venue is downtown dance theater La MaMa. OC describes the event as "a story of love and relationships [told] through movement and dance." That could mean just about anything, but if Jonze and Heffington's previous collab (this delightfully wacky KENZO World perfume short) is any indication of what's in store, we're on board.
Changers premieres during Fashion Week on September 10 and will then run as a ticketed show open to the public for four additional nights.
