Earth Odyssey

by Syd Briscoe


Asaf Avidan: “Earth Odyssey” - 4 mins 31s

Israeli singer-songwriter Asaf Avidan never intended to release 'Earth Odyssey' as a single, but then the world changed. His response takes the form of this absorbing four-and-a-half-minute promo, a love letter to the human body which explores physicality in the small spaces that have become our new normal.

The level of choreographed talent on display here sets this apart from other quarantine montages - a rapidly-growing new genre which produces mixed outcomes. Director and compatriot Adi Halfin ensures coherence throughout, connecting one solo dancer to another and giving the piece an impressively fluid feel.
