We can always count on NOWNESS to reimagine our dance faves by pairing them with equally esteemed cinematographers for short films that feel almost dreamlike (take a look back at their video with ABT's Isabella Boylston and James Whiteside for more amazingness). For their newest creation as a part of their Directors' Cuts series, NOWNESS brought Benjamin Millepied's L.A. Dance Project together with Paris-based filmmaker Adrien Dantou.
Filmed in Arles, France, nine of LADP's members (Janie Taylor was noticeably absent), are shown dancing throughout the currently-being-constructed Parc des Ateliers. The tower-like architecture provides the dancers with several stages, from a sunny rooftop to a slightly creepy underground space that still has a gravel floor. It serves as the perfect backdrop as LADP takes us through a range of emotions from ominous and chaotic to uplifting. Check out the full video, below.
