Peter Buffett’s “SPIRIT: A Journey in Dance, Drums, & Song”

“Spirit: A Journey in Dance, Drums, & Song” is a music, dance and percussion spectacle combining contemporary music with the songs, chants and dances of the Native American culture. A fascinating show!

I’ve discovered 7 segments, This is the first dance in the show: “Urban Overture.”

“Bacchanale” feat. L’il Buck and the New Styles Krew

From the imagination of choreographer/director Benjamin Millepied, we enter a world where ballet meets street dancing. L’il Buck and the New Styles Krew interpret ballet with great finesse and elegance, while staying true to their roots. Composer Nicholas Britell re-composed Bach’s Double Harpsichord Concerto B.M.V. 1060 with woodwinds, drums, electric bass, looping, and glitch FX, while maintaining the “essence” of the Bach Movement throughout to match the feeling of the dance.

Wayne McGregor: A choreographer’s creative process in real time

We all use our body on a daily basis, and yet few of us think about our physicality the way Wayne McGregor does. He demonstrates how a choreographer communicates ideas to an audience, working with two dancers to build phrases of dance, live and unscripted, on the TEDGlobal stage.

🙂 :: Brilliant!

The Thief and The Cobbler Original Cut – Full Length

This is the original cut of The Thief and the Cobbler. This particular version is missing some scenes but it compiled by Garrett Gilchrist as it was intended to be shown. It is so imaginative and entertaining! Enjoyed every minute.

The Thief and the Cobbler is a 1993 British animated fantasy film directed, co-written and co-produced by Canadian animator Richard Williams. The film is famous for its animation and its long, troubled history. Williams worked 28 years on the project. Beginning production in 1964, Williams intended The Thief and the Cobbler would be his masterpiece, and a milestone in the art of animation.

In 2006, a filmmaker, artist and fan of Richard Williams’ work named Garrett Gilchrist created a non-profit fan restoration of William’s workprint, named The Thief and the Cobbler: The Re-cobbled Cut (the version that appears above). Full history here.
