Jimmy Brown - 23rd Feb 2011

With a riveting performance from Northern Soul dancer Steve Cato, Ferry Gouw focuses on the emotional vibe of Above & Beyond's Sun And Moon, as Cato attempts to dance away the pain of a relationship gone wrong.

"I'm trying to bring back the idea of dancing as a transcendental act, where the discipline represents an emotional life beyond the merely hedonistic," explains Ferry. "Northern soul is the closest thing to this. We tried really hard to approach it cinematically, and avoid doing a retro pastiche."
