SHOT@KLATCH: KAY FRANK

DANCE CASE STUDY - STUDIO 1 INFINITY COVE


Dancer, Kay Frank, used our Infinity Cove studio for his dance interpretation of Billie Eillish song 'idontwannabeyouanymore'.


The infinity cove was a great backdrop for Kay's dance, giving a clean white space and allowing his performance to take centre stage.


Watch Kay Frank's dance video here:


Here's what Kay had to say about his video and his experience in the studio:


‘idon’twannabeyouanymore’ was a track I didn’t have to think long about choosing. When I began to put my plans to action, Billie was an artist I wanted to pay respects to in the first order, as her tracks, her reflections and all the emotional baggage conveyed behind her lyrics drove me through my main improvisation training years ago. I promised myself each recorded impro project will, at start, be to Billie’s tracks, and ‘idontwannabeyouanymore’ opened up the river of other projects that followed it.


Seeking a plain, fully white environment I intended to show my performance on, I learned that a wide cyclorama would be my best choice and Klatch was the best option - with its wide space, allowing for the use of a haze machine, providing me with a speaker and make up stations along with the most kind and helpful personel, I felt free and ready to focus fully on my project.


Robe-like, black outfit, sleeked back hair along with bits of black jewelry contrasted with the fully white environment and gave the subject - myself - this great negative space effect where he’s isolated and overwhelmed by the surrounding bleakness, presented isolated, doubting and vulnerable, fighting with his fears and himself all throughout the entire piece. I don’t belong here. I don’t want to be here. I don’t wanna be you anymore.'
