Got a Girl Crush On: The avant-guarde dance stylings of Celia Rowlson-Hall
Filmmaker, dancer and choreographer (Chromeo, Sleigh Bells, MGMT, Sondre Lerche, and Kid Sister to name a few)—this lady makes some seriously compelling videos and “Unto the Locusts” is no exception (Chapter 2 is particularly breathtaking)!
Help Anne dance her way onto The Ellen Show by tweeting @TheEllenShow with the hashtags #ellensdancedare! (p.s. Anne is @AnneMarsen). The whole Girl Walk team will be down in LA this weekend for their premiere at Space15Twenty on Saturday, 2/25!
Around hour-29-or-so of the trip, and after 6+ months of editors-block, I got a sudden burst of inspiration to make a video dedicated to Ellen with some friends I made while stretching in the game room.
And now I prepare for phase two… Starting today, I’m going to make a different dance video for each day of this week, each in a different spot of Los Angeles, all leading up to the Hollywood screening on February 25th! Hopefully (with your help!) they will catch Ellen’s attention and I will get to dance with her!
Anne is boundless in her talent and expression. And after seeing her in the seven-minute teaser to the epic (as in 71 minute) music video set to Girl Talk’s second mashup album, All Day—I wouldn’t expect anything less.
I met-up with team Girl Walk//All Dayon the Williamsburg Bridge before they were shooting with a troupe of teenage b-boys and b-girls from New Jersey. Clad in harem pants straight from her recent trip to India and equipped with a razor scooter, photographing Anne was a breeze. Our interview was conducted over Skype so she could better articulate her thoughts out-loud rather than via email. She is well-spoken and speaks excitedly. She carries her laptop from room-to-room and treats me with impromptu dancing during our chat. At only 22-years-old you envy the opportunities that life has laid before her and he talents.
