A Dance Drama

Nureyev

Year: 2010

Runtime: 00:47:05

Nureyev is a unique dance drama created especially for television exploring the life of the great Russian dancer, Rudolph Nureyev, who defected to the West at the height of the Cold War in 1961. Integrating original choreography created for the screen and dramatic monologues, the film presents a multi-faceted dramatic portrait of one of the seminal performing arts figures of our time. There are the images of the young boy, born in poverty in Russia's Ural region; the late but promising start at the Kirov ballet school; the highly publicized defection to the west at a Paris airport in 1961; the celebrated partnership with the Royal Ballet's Margot Fonteyn; and finally succumbing to death brought on by the HIV virus at the age of 54 in 1993. Along the way, he changed the way the male dancer was presented on stage, transforming him from a prop to an equal performing partner, though with a fury, energy and sexuality never before seen.

Although Il Volo were not yet born when The Three Tenors first performed, they grew up listening to them, being fascinated and inspired by their voices and legendary achievements.

For a change, rather than standing on stage in one of the world’s renowned well-tempered grand concert halls, she spent two evenings playing in a tiny graffiti-scrawled nightclub in the Friedrichshain district of Berlin. The name of the club was Neue Heimat, or “new home”, and on two evenings in early summer it was jam-packed with hip young people.

  • Live at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel

    Ra Ra Riot

    Year: 2013

    Runtime: 29 min

    Earlier this year, when Ra Ra Riot unleashed their third full-length record, Beta Love, we must admit that we were somewhat apprehensive about their sudden synth pop indulgence. To make such a polarized transition away from their intimate orchestral tunes was surely a shock that many longtime fans were forced to gradually grasp. But we, as have Ra Ra Riot's faithful, have come to appreciate this new, effervescent feel, and all it required was a live Beta Love experience.

    We caught Ra Ra Riot's brilliant spectacle down in Austin, Texas during Conflict of Interest's night at Hype Machine's Hype Hotel, and Beta Love skeptics beware, as our video of their entire performance can (and will) make a fan out of the most cynical synth adversary.
