FKA twigs held a free dance workshop in Baltimore’s Lithuanian Hall this past summer, and today she’s released a documentary pragmatically titled Baltimore Dance Project that chronicles the experience. Like any FKA twigs visual, though, it’s captivating. The Nick Walker-directed clip turns an event that began with four tweets from twigs into a stunning black-and-white portrayal of Baltimore’s creativity, heart, and soul with 400 dancers sweating it out on the hottest day of the year. Here’s what twigs had to say about it:
When I was thinking about doing a dance project, the obvious places would be LA or New York but I thought why not go to a place that obviously has so much soul and so much amazing energy? You’ll be able to connect with them rather than being another artist that is passing through.
