Palace 'It's Over' by Maxim Kelly
Colonel Blimp's newest director Maxim Kelly flips the world on its head during the apocalypse for Palace.
Set within the confines of a church during the looming presence of the end of the world, Kelly shows us people repenting, confessing and attempting to live out their final days with a desperate dignity. With striking lighting and choreography highlighting the duality, and performance aspects of religion, it's a great portrait of desperation, anarchy and helplessness.
"It’s over - it’s the end of the world. In this video we meet a small group of people as they try to face the end with grace and dignity. In this video I tried to avoid many of the cliches inherent in end of the world stories. Instead I attempted to make a film referencing the ideas of the “Carnivalesque” by Mikhail Bakhtin.
"During carnival according to Bakhtin a world-upside-down is created, societal norms are inverted and hierarchy is abolished. There is free and familiar interaction between all people, eccentric behaviour is welcomed and sacrilegious events occur without the need for punishment. This freedom is anarchy at it’s most beautiful, touching and poignant."
