This video by The Royal Ballet is really going to knock your socks off. The dancers are principals Edward Watson and Marianela Nuñez performing the pas de deux from Infra, a ballet by choreographer Wayne McGregor. The beautiful, sensitive score is by composer Max Richter.
The ballet explores the emotions that lie beneath the surface of human interactions. It’s meant to explore the feelings we hide from each other, and it speaks volumes to me about loneliness, even in a crowd. I wasn’t able to find a video of the entire ballet, but after the duet and an interview with McGregor, I posted a full-length rehearsal that gives you some good glimpses into the rest of the ballet.
