The LXD project – Legion of Extraordinary Dancers
December 4, 2009 § 1 Comment
Can dance take another dimension? After it was born on the streets, reborn in reality shows, after it flooded the Youtube… can dance really become a totally new online experience? Wow, the trailers I saw are amazing. I don’t know exactly what they are promising, but they are teasers with a capital T. The Legion of Extraordinary dancers performed in the SYTYCD reality shows and blew the roof of Kodak studio away. This is technically superb dancing, completely out-of-the-box choreography and obviously strong emotional stories behind it. I am excited to see what will happen in 2010. It looks so promising and I got a feeling it might be a special treat for my hungry dancing soul.
This is a clip from SYTYCD sneak peek performance:
John M. Chu, the writer and director of the project, describes it as a very supernatural yet human and a bit of a sci-fi project, calling dancers a superheroes: “No special effects, no wires, this is real people, with real powers. This is not a reality show, this is a ground-breaking epic on-line adventure.” Just check out this official trailer and you will see what I’m talking about:
