Watch This Beautiful Dance Piece Inspired By Gay Film 'Moonlight'


An original dance piece paying homage to director Barry Jenkins’s Best Picture Oscar nominated drama about growing up black and gay in America, Moonlight, has just been released.

In the video piece, director Anna Rose Holmer, known for her 2016 drama The Fits, captures a unique collaboration between New York’s Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre and Academy Award-nominated Moonlight composer Nicholas Britell.

Choreographed by the theatre’s artistic director Robert Battle, dancers Jamar Roberts, Christopher Taylor and Jeremy T. Villas play out a blue-lit movement to a euphoric score by Britell, the mind behind the Moonlight soundtrack.

Moonlight opens in cinemas tomorrow, and you can read our review here.
