The dance is a fascinating art that can take many forms. And while we thought we knew everything about it, we still discover artists who manage to revolutionize the practice and to amaze us with truly masterful performances. This is particularly the case Julie Gautier, a director and dancer who unveiled last March a fabulous short film christened "AMA".
Passionate about apnea, this director performs a fascinating dance full of poetry for more 6 minutes. Until then, nothing exceptional would you say to me. But all the charm of the exercise comes from the fact thatshe performs this choreography ... under the water. Inevitably, in the aquatic environment, the movements become much more slow and harmonious, as in a state of weightlessness.
A performance performed, according to the artist, in reference to women in Japanese apnea. And for the anecdote, Julie Gautier is not at all novice in the world of cinema. A few years ago, she notably staged her companion Guillaume Nery, also apneist, in various videos, including "Free Fall" which has been seen more than 26 million times.
She also worked for Beyonce for whom she made the clip for the title "Runnin". Julie Gautier offers us a wonderful moment of escape and poetry, halfway between sporting and artistic performance which will be remembered a good time.
