GIFs of a Captivating Light and Movement Performance

Nuance is a spectacular video by multidisciplinary artist Marc-Antoine Locatelli that features dancer Lucas Boirat combining his gift of movement with captivating beams of light. The interpretative performance presents a push and pull between the human silhouette and a shape-shifting abstract energy. The stark contrast in the dark shadows and the radiant flashes of light make for an especially eye-catching performance accompanied by the experimental music of edIT.

The video begins with Boirat casually stepping out of the shadows and onto his dimly lit stage. With the swift wave of his hand, he conjures up a ball of light that he seemingly manipulates in shape and motion across the screen. Eventually, the light seems to take on a life of its own and is as much a character with a driving force in the dance as Boirat.

Make sure to take two-and-a-half minutes out of your day to watch the visually captivating video, below.
