So this was the reason I was in L.A. Didn't really know what Max (Vitali) and Robyn had in mind when I flew in but we just sat down and thought of what we could to, what we felt like doing, and in what way we could communicate it. So I got into the dance studio, ate/shitted/slept dance for a couple of days. When I choreograph for ROBYN I always take my starting point in her body/movements, the moves are improvised then put into a loose schedule of movements. It's not meant to be complex, it's just meant to be one with the music (and is also why I prefer to not watch the clip on youtube - youtube never fully syncs audio and video, totally disturbing) and don't look like it's die-hard choreographed, rather by heart - in the moment.
Just to make a couple of things clear, yes she's doing her version of an Electric Slide, a dance that often is a part of wedding celebration wich is, yes kind of cocky, but that is exactlly how sure she is about this guy...noooow it's meeee and yoooou! And it's not Tecktonik in the break, if it needs a label it's rather old school RAVE dancing UK - style #1989
We didn't plan to do an one take video but on the set we realized pretty soon that it would work, thank's to Robyn's artistic expression (that makes her the performer she is) and also a lot thank's to our Camera man, the Director Of Photography Crille Forsberg's work, and of course Director Max s trust in all involved. He kind of danced himself, with Robyn, to capture the whole piece!
This is no doubt one of the most pleasant videos I've done and I'm really proud of the result. Feel priviliged to work with so much great people!
So I bet you want to know about the clothes too. Robyn was pretty sure on what she wanted clothingwise. She wanted to keep the silouette we've created for the tour also in this video. Stylist Scott Clark jumped in on short notice and fixed a new pink version of the Timb platforms wich suited a pair of JEREMY SCOTT's leggings and Robyn's own fluffy RODEBJER top. Everything matching the amazing floor in the studio!
