WARNING: contains imagery some might find disturbing
Dancing with abandon for the Berlin-based house music producer Cassy's new video, directed by Reza Dolatabadi.
Resident at Berlin’s iconic house music temple Panorama bar for nearly a decade, and a core member of the Female:Pressure group - a global network connecting women in electronic music - English DJ and producer Cassy has long battled for women’s visibility within the predominantly male dance scene, in and out of the booth.
“Almost 90% of the performance is improvised”
For the first release from the producer’s debut album, Donna, London-based director Reza Dolatabadi ran with the theme of female unity, bringing together a mysterious group of women in an intense dance-off. “Almost 90% of the performance is improvised,” says Dolatabadi, who shot the handheld footage entirely on Double X 16mm stock with no artificial light. “My brief to the dancers was to think of a situation that could make you very sad, angry or happy and work it out in your performance.”
