Set in a vista that threatens to overwhelm the dancers, Loom takes us under the water to explore the different perspectives of a daydreamer.
Carefully choreographed and beautifully shot, this music video for Ólafur Arnaulds features dancers on a lake, moving with strange, flitting, Unseelie grace. Set against a stunning background, dancers move around each other, interacting with the water like a piece of set decoration, slowly drowning under the still, frigid waters.
Simple and beautiful, Loom was directed by Neels Castillon of Motion Palace, strengthened by an influential collaboration with choreographer Fanny Sage. Like many pieces that are gorgeous because of their restraint, the directness belies the work done to film at a mercurial mountain lake 2000 meters above sea level.
