Rob Ulitski - 6th Nov 2019

Synchronised movement and stylised colour palettes translate into a powerful performance in Moss Kena’s Begging, choreographed and directed by Ally Green.

Set on an isolated beach, a group of dancers styled in washed-out autumnal colours are moving in unison, tracking each other's movements as they walk single-file down the coast. Broken up by an emotional and intimate performance, Moss Kena does a great job of expressing complex emotion through extremely subtle facial expressions. 

Green's choreography is contemporary and reminiscent of the more aggressive/energetic dancing we have seen from artists such as Sia and Pink, where strength and raw emotion take precedent over aesthetic. Beautifully shot by Charlie Goodger, the location feels almost like a character in itself, due to some beautiful wide shots and unique composition throughout. It's a great execution for a simple yet effective concept.
