videoSigrid 'It Gets Dark' (Live) by Beki Mari
Beki Mari directs a brilliant performance of It Gets Dark by Sigrid on The Late Late Show with James Corden."Paying homage to a classic rock and roll performance, it’s an idea of extreme contrasts; of black and white, futuristic, raw energy," says Mari. "We play with this stark simplicity and thus light becomes our point of difference."The deceptively simple concept - consisting of a performance in a white cyc studio - emanates huge amounts of energy, elevated by Sigrid and her band's riotous performance and the dramatic lighting cues. "We used a mix of programmed and handheld light to dramatically change the space; from bouncing bright white light to suddenly being plunged into darkness," continues Mari."The effervescence of this contrast then careers us into a new wildness; flashing spots and a drenching of sensory blue until we land softly, sinking into prismic, celestial sparkle - created using mix of handheld foil, laser mirrors and an Astroraggi."Those elements all combine to showcase a stellar performance by Sigrid, reminding us why she is one of today’s most exciting pop stars.
