What would it look like if Black Swan’s Nina Sayers had met with Anakin Skywalker? With this week’s MVOTW, you don’t have to wonder anymore.
In the music video for the Belgian Music producer Apashe song Lord & Master, dancer Brontë Poire-Prest delivers an intense performance that gets under your skin. Tension keeps building throughout the video, which goes beyond just a battle between good and evil.
The track, which is a part of the artist’s second album, was recorded with the Symphonic Orchestra Rudolfinum, from Prague. The video certainly honours this majestic song. With its choreography and flashy lights, this post-technology battle takes the viewer on an epic, timeless adventure and transports them to the most eerie place; somewhere between a Renaissance painting and a pop-culture nightmare.
