Souvid Datta directs a poignant, emotional promo for Messengers.
Soumik Datta 'Movement' by Souvid Datta
Souvid Datta presents Episode 2 of the Silent Spaces series, following last month's Messengers.
Many of us have been limited to confined spaces during the pandemic, the impact felt both on our minds and bodies. In this second episode set in Manchester, brothers Soumik and Souvid Datta invite the viewer to break free of lockdown constraints, celebrating the power of movement and our physical bodies.
Steeped in a history of Olympic swimming teams, baths, a Post Office and a train station, the industrial Mayfield area - now repurposed as a nightclub - embodies the true spirit of rejuvenation and change.
The concept is composed and performed by Soumik Datta on live electronics, with a team of prolific Manchester based contemporary dancer-choreographers.
The beats build from soft, organic drips (recorded on site) to a pulsating EDM hook, charting the positive impact that dancing and letting loose has on the body and our mental health.
A vibrant showcase of sound and visuals, the promo plays on everyday dichotomies to achieve the dynamic concept - light and dark, movement and stillness, reality and fantasy - which form together to produce something poignant and hopeful.
