War Dance

Caviar Photographer/Director Cyprien Clément-Delmas juxtaposes the gracefully choreographed movements of armoured tanks and dancers in War Dance – a striking reflection on the consequences of war set to the specifically composed sounds of Paris based muscian Thylacine. About the thematic significance of the central dance performance Cyprien says:

“I didn’t want to make another stylised and superficial dance video. The dance of Kate and Ivan
was only a small part of the concept but I realised that this dance would be the heart of the video. It evokes the
consequences of war, the fear of leaving for war, the pride of the soldier and the suffering of loved ones. The idea was to place them in a real space, surrounded by real people, patients and doctors, and dance as if it was the most natural thing in the world.”
