seaweedsisters-waterfountainseaweedsisters-waterfountain2 seaweedsisters-waterfountain3

Seaweed Sisters is a passion project by acclaimed dancers/choreographers Megan Lawson, Jillian Meyers and Dana Wilson. Prior to meeting my girlfriend I wasn’t at all familiar with the dance world, but these days my favourite thing to search on Youtube is urban dance camp, and I’ve become a huge fan of these three women. This film, set to Tuneyard’s “Water Fountain”, is a follow up to their last film choreographed to Major Lazer’s “Get Free”.

Watch both films below.

Shot from above in ultra high resolution video, Giraffe’s Eye allows you to see the daily routines of the artists who inhabited the building with a simple touch of a screen. Really cool idea! See more images and video below.
