This Perth train rider proves meeting strangers is easy: just dance!

Nicole Hughes Contributor

By Nicole Hughes in News on Wednesday 15 October 2014

You’ve grabbed the train like you do everyday heading to the same place as you do everyday. Then like normal, a guy stands in the middle of the carriage asking for the public’s attention. Except this time, it’s different. However, you divert your eyes, pretend to be sleeping or listening to you iPod.

What this professional dancer does to his body is insane

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in New Events on Monday 1 September 2014

Berlin-based dancer Rauf Yasit calls himself Rubber Legz and you’ll see why. This guy has the ability to pose in any way for the camera, making us all feel a little uncomfortable at the same time! Yasit actually started this contortion work after he injured his back, and unable to perform acrobatics as a breakdancer, he decided to do the next best thing.

Watch these ballet dancers pull off incredible moves in slo-mo

Rachel Oakley Contributor

By Rachel Oakley in Video on Friday 30 May 2014

If you could only master the very basics in ballet, not to worry. Many of us will never perform as professionals, but those with enough talent to twirl and spin and perform, err, seven double and one triple fouettés en tournant are probably dancing their way onto a stage near you. PostTV has put all our half-second tippy-toe dances to shame and found some of the most talented ballet dancers around.

Daft Signz: sign spinning plus street dancing plus Daft Punk equals awesome

Gem Contributor

By Gem in Video on Tuesday 24 September 2013

The only YouTube videos I care to watch lately are of short documentaries and cute puppy videos. A few years ago, when I watched a lot of BMX and skate videos, I would occasionally stumble upon similar ‘athletics in the urban landscape’ type videos, such as free running, parkour, people trying to do BMX tricks […]

Daft Signz: Lose Yourself to Dance

Gem Contributor

The only YouTube videos I care to watch lately are of short documentaries and cute puppy videos. I don’t even watch that many music videos anymore. A few years ago, when I watched a lot of BMX and skate videos, I would occasionally stumble upon similar ‘athletics in the urban landscape’ type videos, such as […]

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Video on Wednesday 22 May 2013

How much more epic can Daft Punk’s new single featuring Pharrell Williams, ‘Get Lucky’, get? Well, loads more, as a certain YouTuber, Gabriel Zev Kenny, showed us, thanks to his mashup of the tune with some footage from American variety show Soul Train of folks getting their groove on. It’s so good, you could learn […]

The holycoaster s(HIT) circus by PENG! Palast

Low Lai Chow Contributor

By Low Lai Chow in Video on Thursday 31 January 2013

I just caught Swiss-German theatre group PENG! Palast’s brilliant production the holycoaster s(HIT) circus the other day. It starts out with an entertaining behind-the-scenes ‘documentary’ of the group’s earnest attempt to collaborate with Israeli dancers, before plunging into a relentless stage performance that confronted the audience full-on with deeply uncomfortable issues of the prejudices and […]

Beautiful reworking of controversial dance pieces

Evangelia from Lolas Bad Reader Find

By Evangelia from Lolas Bad in New Events on Thursday 6 December 2012

I never use this term but Beyond Ballet Russes, the English National Ballet’s show in honour of Sergei Diaghilev’s legacy, was truly mesmerizing. I watched Programme 1 at the National Opera earlier this year and my enthusiasm is focused on ENB’s versions of the legendary choreographies, L’après-midi d’un faune, and The Rite of Spring by Vaslav Nijinsky. Beautiful and in-depth reworkings of these old and controversial works, the latter one accompanied by Stravisky’s breathtaking score.

Mesmerizing choreography by Marie Chouinard

The Faint Reader Find

By The Faint in Video on Friday 30 November 2012

This video depicts the work of choreographer Marie Chouinard, whom I’ve only recently become familiar with when some friends showed me a clip of this video in a party setting. Upon further examination, I found the work to be very intriguing and much deeper than anyone at the party probably realized. I was immediately taken […]

Prom Night: a modern dance film by Celia Rowlson

Brice Budke Reader Find

By Brice Budke in Video on Tuesday 20 November 2012

I’m hardly ever this drawn to modern dance films, but Celia Rowlson has managed to create something truly captivating with this single-shot performance piece. Interpretive dance, a more abstract form of expression, rarely contains this level of narrative and characterization. It is sad, funny, beautiful, and hypnotizing.

Roy Waks Reader Find

By Roy Waks in Video on Friday 6 July 2012

This video contains an interesting and impressive dance. However, I want to highlight the elements that were combined to complete this dance piece. Lighting, clothing, makeup … borrowed elements from the contemporary, minimalistic displays of the experimental fashion world.
