Just Because Someone Asked…Edouard Lock/Lalala Human Step’s “Amelia”
Message received from an old college friend at 11:16 p.m. EST, March 1:
Okay, so – maybe you can help me out…
I’m trying to find a modern ballet video I saw once, and I figure you’re as likely as any of my friends to help. I have very little to go on.
It was a duet
It took place in a room built like the hull of a ship in that the walls were many wooden boards and they were curved, not geometric.
It was breathtaking.
My response at 11:23 p.m.:
No idea. Let me see what I can do.
11:24 p.m.: I post his description verbatim to Facebook and ask for help.
12:13 a.m.: Dancer/choreographers Nicole Sasala and Sarah Parton simultaneously post the same like to a clip from the Edouard Lock-directed and choreographer 2002 film Amelia (buy on Amazon), from Canadian company Lalala Human Steps, which is in fact the very film being referenced.
Anyway, someone asked about it, so let’s all consider it. Again. If you already have. (I obviously hadn’t.)
