Mia Micheals choreographed this piece called “Addiction” and it was danced by Kayla and Kupono.
Kupono was the addiction, Kayla the addicted.
I’ve watched this at least 30 times now, and every single time – I am moved even deeper.
What a brilliant piece.
Mia Michael’s is a choreographing genius and Kayla and Kupono really made the story come to life. The way the two of them are so insync with each other as he ‘controls’ her [much like a real addiction can control someone’s life] is utterly breath taking. From the opening scene where she appears to ingest him, to the way he puts his hands covering her mouth, and how she loses the battle in the end. Every single movement and every single gesture is absolutely deliberate.
This has to be The Most Powerful [and beautiful] dance I’ve been privileged to watch on this season. Seriously. This gave me the chills in my soul and, brings tears to my eyes.
