The National have shared the video for “Dark Side Of The Gym“.
The video was directed, choreographed by NYC Ballet Resident Choreographer and soloist Justin Peck and executive produced by former Miami City Ballet dancer and current dance filmmaker Ezra Hurwitz.
The video finds the duo Justin Peck and former Miami City Ballet mentor and Principal dancer, Patricia Delgado, gracefully move around a balloon filled auditorium.
The video for “Dark Side Of The Gym” premiered via New Yorker, who described it as “essentially an extended pas de deux, highly technical but low-key, intimate, and a little sexy…The song and the video read like a love letter. At the end, as the music frays and the dancing stops, the camera settles on Delgado’s sorrowful, vulnerable expression.”
