Kinda random, I know – but still fun. I just came across this beautiful clip from the Chicago-based Hubbard Street Dance. It’s an interpretive dance set to some Devendra tunes – in this case, Sight to Behold and Tit Smoking…, both from Rejoicing in the Hands. The Devendra bits are pretty short, but the dancers are amazing and definitely do the songs justice.
“…Choreographed by Alejandro Cerrudo, a company dancer who hails from Madrid, Spain. Three couples explored relationships in sensuous joint-less sequences and somersaults that continually layered five in spot-on unison with one in a solo up front. The rotating spatial designs were pleasing, such as the group assembling on the stage edge and bathed in a spotlight from above. A masterful lighting design by Cerrudo and O’ Gara illuminated smooth skin and long limbs, but in the end, all six bodies mysteriously disappeared into inky blackness, a dramatic trick that sent spines into a tingle.”
