Sculptures in kaleidoscopic colors, wool clothing that have sprung straight from the runway, and classical dancing from aged-college punk rock: these are just a several of the artistic aspects that FKA twigs introduced to her playful new shorter film.
The English singer-songwriter directed and starred in the piece in collaboration with the Worldwide Woolmark Prize, a celebration of global trend expertise doing work with Australian Merino wool. Aptly titled Playscape, the quick showcases the styles that manufactured it to the last rounds of the prestigious style prize, which this 12 months operated beneath the concept, “Enjoy”.
The movie opens in the Noguchi Foundation Museum in Queens, New York, with a established of sculptures by Japanese American sculptor Isamu Noguchi, an experimental artist identified for mixing modernity and custom. An ensemble solid of dancers get there onstage, moving to “He Hu” by Duval Timothy and Rosie Lowe and X-Ray Spex’s “Identification,” all choreographed by classically skilled dancer Juliano Nunes. Twigs herself dances amongst them, all donning the ground breaking wool-based mostly creations of this year’s finalist designers.
“It is an honor to be picked by the Woolmark Prize to operate with these types of gifted designers and to develop my first piece of function with Juliano Nunes, innovator of dance for the Avant Yard collective,” twigs mentioned.
Weaving with each other artwork, manner, and songs, twigs delivers fairly the visual spectacle, which you can observe higher than.
