Craig Black is Partita......

First off... Isn't this what everyone believes they look like when dancing around their apartments, thinking no one else is watching?!?!? Dancer Craig Black moves beautifully through this period apartment in upstate New York’s Mount Kisco in Benjamin Millepied and violinist–turned-creative director Timothy Fain’s short film for Nowness.

Set to Phillip Glass’s score “Partita for Solo Violin” The film is part of Fain’s multimedia film. Benjamin Millepied, New York City Ballet principal and now face of YSL’s L’Homme Libre perfume; was Fain’s first call for direction of complimentary footwork after previously collaborating on the set of Black Swan.

“Philip’s new solo violin works are very beautiful, haunting and heartbreaking at the same time,” says Millepied about the music which inspired his works. “Images came quickly to mind, stories and intimate moments reflecting life.”
