Cat Velez - 6th Feb 2017

A storm brews inside of a burka-clad dancer in Western Medicine, driving her jolted movements around an arid, disused suburban lot.

Shot and co-directed by Ryan Hope for Nowness, the sequence is gripping and heavy - unfolding elegantly but carrying with it a palpable sense of fear, dread and pain. Alongside an unnerving score from composer Ari Balouzian - who co-directed the clip – the resulting three minute piece really manages to put the viewer you on edge.
