In a band-less promo for Kensington, a young man stands in the Lethe between self and soul, creating a wonderful world of shadows and light

With modern choreography and a starkly lit, retrained stage, a dancer explores a minimal world, at first feeling trapped, and then diving into the expanse. The stage is the center of an eye, an island, and then all of a sudden it’s the whole world, the whole universe. The visuals are full of vacuums, dark empty spaces that push the dancer, Giovanni Pisas, further into the world of pupils and solar systems. 

Boris Booij directs a piece that exemplifies the creativity that can happen in lockdown, and even under restricted filming controls. Produced by  CZAR Amsterdam, they have created a promo that is striking and beautifully edited. The use of lighting and VFX creates a fun, mythological piece that alternates between chthonic and heavenly with ease.
