Maelstrom 'Dual Phase' by Dorny Sunday
Following the splendid video for Ascender, British-Persian director Dorny Sunday has delivered the second part of his trilogy of videos for Parisian electro legend Maelstrom, which expands upon the story of a once-brilliant dancer, now confined to a wheelchair.
For Dual Phase, lead single from Maelstrom’s latest album Rhizome, the dancer-turned-choreographer confronts a tragic shift of identity, as the dancer's world of motion is transformed into one of stillness.
The performer (choreographer Caterina Grosoli) compulsively replays her swan song in her old dance studio. Which as a rather ominous voiceover informs us, is a venue that was once a heaven, which has become some form of hell. We experience the agonies and ecstasies of muscle memory in this ode to movement.
Once again, Sunday's creates an absorbing experience, melding the dance performance with Maelstrom's kinetic track, in a well-crafted fusion of movement, location, use of space and colour, evoking drama and emotion - the feeling of heavy-heartedness and a longing for more - from the experience.
And this lays the ground for their third and final film of the trilogy, to be released in the summer.
