Inspiration: Violet Scrap at the Tribal Remix Teachers Showcase 2014

Violet Scrap at Tribal RemixI had to miss Violet Scrap’s workshops, one because I wanted a break in between the other two workshops I was taking that day, and the other because I would be performing. After seeing this performance during the showcase, I regretted not doing it even more.

I have to say, I was a bit weirded out when the music started, but I went with it, and found myself enjoying it more and more as it went on, and by the end I was totally spellbound… She has such a strong stage presence, the musicality was SUPERB, and I loved the whole deranged mechanical doll vibe that the piece had, even her gaze was so intense that it reminded me in bits of the Robot Maria dance in Metropolis… Her expression throughout was *that* good, it projected all the way back, and looking at her, I could see nearly every nuance of the music showing *somewhere* on her body, and if anything, the lighting in the video does hide a bit of it.

Do yourself a favour and watch at full size in HD, even if you prefer less experimental dancing or music.

    I really really didn’t expect to like that piece when it started…you are right, it’s enthralling!

      I know! It was amazing to see live! She’s doing a 10-hour intensive in December with Hilde Canoodt, and I’m hoping I can attend!
