Amelia: Amazing Ballet by La La La Human Steps

Amelia is a 2002 dance film by Edouard Lock - the dance routine is astoudingly fast. It is simply a technical tour de force.

The dancers are from Montreal dance company La La La Human Steps, the music is composed of Lou Reed lyrics with music by David Lang (a major contributor to the score for Requiem for a Dream) and the wooden stage was created just for this piece.

The award-winning movie is available from Opus Arte. Hit play or go to Link [YouTube] - Thanks Jhayne!

Wow! You weren't kidding, those moves were so amazingly fast and accurate. The female dancer must have unbelievable physical prowess to be able to dance that so well. Thanks for sharing this video!

I love the song playing! Forgive me if this has been mentioned (and a little off topic) but is there any validity to this video of the deaf dancers?

It's amazing as well but watching these, I wondering how much of it is real or exaggerated? But beautiful, don't get me wrong!

I've seen Amelia live, and it IS this fast. If I recall correctly, it's essentially about the nature of love, and the increasingly blurred divide between the human and the artificial and how that affects our ability to love and be loved. I still have the programme around somewhere, I'll see if I can find it. If I can, I'll put up a blog post and link back here.
