An extract from Wayne McGregor's Chroma, featuring Laura Morera and Eric Underwood dancing to The Hardest Button to Button by The White Stripes. Find out more at http://www.roh.org.uk/chroma
Wayne McGregor's Chroma explores the drama of the human body and its ability to communicate extremes of thought and emotion. The score, drawn from original music by Joby Talbot and his arrangements of music by American rock band The White Stripes, is combined with stark, minimalist designs by architect John Pawson. Against this backdrop is set the inventive and energy-driven choreography of McGregor. Chroma had its premiere in 2006 at the Royal Opera House and in 2007 received an Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production.
Duas versões. A clássica, de Son House, e a excelente cover dos White Stripes. É uma delícia ouvir Jack White falar de Son House no filme "It Gets Louder". O filme junta o senhor White a Jimmy Page e The Edge, numa exploração do instrumento de eleição dos três, a guitarra eléctrica. Muitas histórias, algumas boas ideias, alguma música. Recomenda-se.
