ANONA 'Melt' by Ariya Akhavan
ANONA, an international music and art collaborative with it's own detailed manifesto, stands for Art Non Artist, and essentially describes itself as being all about the work, and not the personality. The track Melt is one of the first completed collaborations created through the online collaborative, and the first to have a visual dimension.
Ex-members of the American National Gymnastics team produced a choreography to accompany the music, then alumni of St. Martin's Film Academy agreed to collaborate. The result is this very noteworthy video, directed by Ariya Akhavan and featuring the dancers Aliya Protto and Omar Canedo.
It's a powerful piece of work, with terrific camerawork, and the drama of the dance is encapsulated particularly by Protto's performance - the former USA gymnast, now model, is a compelling presence in the video.
