Bristol-based producer and multi-instrumentalist Kayla Painter unveils her new song and video “Drones” today, which also marks her directorial debut. She enlisted dancer and choreographer Flavien Esmieu to help her create her dystopian futuristic vision.
“I wanted to work with a dancer because I wanted to use someone that could push their bodies to extremes which ordinary people aren’t able to do,” Painter says. “I was interested in playing with the limitations of the body, and showing someone exceed limitations through specific training of the body. Flavien Esmieu seemed like the perfect person to explore this with. Not only is he a ballet dancer, but he has been dancing since he was four years old. Over months of emailing, watching and exchanging clips he choreographed a dance which fitted the story I had been building of a synthetic in a factory-type setting.”
