“The LA Dance Project, an art collective founded by renowned choreographer Benjamin Millepied (whose work you might recognize from a little film Black Swan), recently formed to celebrate both traditional, well-known productions and innovative, experimental new works.
Millepied invited Oscar-nominated director Alejandro G. Inarritu (Biutiful (2010), Babel (2006) to a rehearsal for the LA Dance Project’s premiere performance, and Inarritu was so inspired, he decided to make a “video-exercise” to document the movement and dance in an experimental way, with a stream of consciousness narrative.
“Benjamin’s choreography is both sensual and melancholic. The features of the dancers are so unique and noble, as are their bodies. When I saw a rehearsal, I felt a sense of urgency, sex, and violent introspection. A long time ago I had this idea of somebody finding herself in an eternal loop, going down a hill. A kind of psychological limbo,” says Inarritu.
