Piet Row 'Luna' by Giovanni Bolzani Valenzano
Giovanni Bolzani Valenzano creates something magical from the mundane in his latest filmed choreography piece for the Italian electronic artist Piet Row.
In a children's hospital at night, two women are transformed by dance and costume into creatures performing a movement ritual that brings them together. Then this process moves on to the next stage - a third dancer is drawn into their orbit on an old London Underground tube train.
Like his previous video for Piet Row, for You're Not Alone Anymore, Valenzano's video features a stirring dance performance by Greta O'Brien Vial - this time with her fellow dancers Kasichana Okene-Jameson and Faye Stoeser. Their superb costumes by Elena Muntoni are crucial in establishing their fantasy dance world within these incongruous locations. The video also benefits from lovely photography by Jack Hamilton, and a boldly colourful grade by Caroline Morin.
The video for Luna is a marvellous expression of the power of choreography, as a way to portray a dream world,and also the imaginings of young children. Luna is the little girl, seen towards the end of the video, who dreams of her mum, who has to work late night shifts at the children's hospital, as a magical and fierce creature.
