Wonderbound, a contemporary ballet company located in Denver, Colorado, has choreographed and filmed a music video for Phish's "Julius" from Hoist.
From the link above:
Sometime in February 1995 I was asked, by way of a mix C.D. to go to a dance called the Big Band Boogie Ball. On that C.D. were two songs I had never heard of that were played on repeat until every note was singed into my ears and burned on my brain. I immediately drove to the local Record store to scoop up any additional albums and the 411 on this band called Phish. Fast forward 25 years, one husband, thousands of recordings and between the two of us 60 some live shows, it’s safe to say I love this band. There is nothing quite like the high vibe, energetic, feel good hit of dopamine that live art brings. Anything can happen in live performance and I for one crave the paradox of feeling certain about the magical unpredictability of live art. As Wonderbound continues to take great strides to return to this same performance experience, I am delighted to share Julius, a music video, starring William Clayton and featuring the Wonderbound company artists, with music by Phish. Filmed August 20-26, 2020 at Wonderbound, I hope we manage to make you smile.

Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
Thank you to whomever posted the link to this video. I appreciate it so much. And thank you to the individual(s) who donated via Wonderbound’s website. I’m the choreographer/cinematographer for the film. I joined the forum several years ago but am not a regular. I’m so grateful to have been able to combine two things I love under one roof of sorts. To share my work with lovers of this music and art in general is a joy, particularly in a time where all art/dance/music needs support AND is a great healer. If you happen to click around the website, you’ll find lots of bands local to Denver that we often collaborate with in our live shows. You might find something you like. The dancers and I had so much fun making the film...I think we may have a few new fans. Enjoy it and many, many thanks!!! See you at Dicks!!! (I hope).
