Anima

Anima

A little fairy dust
A thousand tiny birds singing
If you must, you must

thought this was just a PTA short and didn’t realize it was part of Thom Yorke’s new album until the music started. but how beautiful it is! although i like the haunting melodies i really have to be in the mood to enjoy them. 

the choreography captures the concept of the anima - the unconscious feminine side - like a sweeping dream, emerging as an enlightening presence and constantly evading his awake pursuits. fragments of his soul, dark and light, real and imagined, self and other, a constant dance. Dawn Chorus is clearly my favorite as it expresses this breathtaking unity and conflict of two sides with a loving embrace. it’s this merging that also eases the fear of reality slipping away, and suddenly we’re grounded again
