The National release video for 'Dark Side Of The Gym'
01 December 2017
The National are pleased to release the video for ‘Dark Side Of The Gym’, directed, choreographed and starring NYC Ballet Resident Choreographer and soloist Justin Peck, with executive production by former Miami City Ballet dancer turned filmmaker Ezra Hurwitz. Also featuring fellow former Miami City Ballet mentor and Principal dancer Patricia Delgado, the video finds the duo gracefully move around a balloon-filled auditorium.
The song and the video read like a love letter. At the end, as the music frays and the dancing stops, the camera settles on Delgado’s sorrowful, vulnerable expression.”
