Cortney Tidwell – Watusii


What you see is a dizzying rotation to the exhausted climax. The audience might doubt their sense of balance while parking lots, roofs, galleries and other locations are mingled and mangled. But its not just about the motion; its these little lovely details and props. The song is visualized by light-paintings moving in staccato to the beat while Courtney plays paper drums reminding us of the Stones. Strange looking persons with buckets for heads are forming words out of living bodies while others are bullying the beat with umbrellas. Conclusion: The two directors are creating a weird, screaming, fast and colorful journey that does not leaves any room for breathing.
