Rapture Film (6 Min) 2008, USA

Rapture Film is a short-film celebrating the architecture of Frank Gehry in movement. Dancers defying gravity and scale rush up and down the hills of a metallic desert against the sky’s backdrop. Set atop the undulating rooftops of the Frank Gehry-designed Fisher Center, Rapture features six dancers retained by ropes performing on the outside surface of the building, superimposing their bodies to the architecture in a sensual and dynamic choreography evoking the epic setting.
