Joseph Delaney directs an intense double-performance, counter-balancing the industrial/rock band Drownd with a group of contemporary dancers. 

Choreographed by Simon Donnellon, the dancers (from the Ballet Rambert school) feed off the raw aggression of the band in a deserted venue, and Delaney's surprising juxtaposition of the differing styles of performance pays off.      


The dance sequence... charged with the sexual electricity of a club dance floor.

"We want to create a video that played on the dynamic between performer and audience, and present a two-sided performance. The band on one side, putting on a show, building up in its volence and intensity as the track moves on, with a look that’s as messy and chaotic to match.

"To the other a choreographed dance sequence that mirrors the band’s intensity but sits in direct contrast to the spontaneity of their performance with something ordered, rehearsed, and slick in a way that could be transplanted into a pop video - but one charged with the sexual electricity of a club dance floor where a pounding track like Sinner needs to be heard."
