Medicine – A Dance Film: A Lover Struggles then Succumbs to Her Partner’s Addiction (video)

Medicine – A Dance Film from Carlos et Marcus on Vimeo.

Zack came to us with the idea of telling a story through dance :
A love story that is tangled in addiction. We see the consequences of a lover who is struggling with her partners disease and the person he once was, only to succumb to his demons and dive head first into his addiction.

The choreography was created and rehearsed over a period of several days with Tamara, who is known also as the French singer Shy’m rather than a dancer. It was shot in an abandoned warehouse in Paris, formerly used for creating glassware and silverware.

All natural lighting, thanks to the clouds and dirty windows 🙂
