WONDERBOUND'S MUSIC VIDEO FOR "JULIUS"

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.

littlegirldancer Hey everybody,
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).

Warmly,
Sarah

Wow thank you so much for this! Clearly a lot of work went into making the video. Impressive! Oh and I loved the orange julius nods and the "et tu" reference... very clever.

disco_stu1973 Very Impressive. The dancing, choreography, and video work are all top notch. The next time I have to put on a stupid suit and sit at one of those tables I will be thinking of this. Cheers!

Hey Sarah, I'm the one who posted this but only after a fellow .netter (I'll let him decide if he wants to say it was him) sent me the link and asked if we'd be willing to show the ballet company some love. I really dug the video - thanks for sharing, especially the bit about your own Phishy journey. Great stuff! - pete
