A trailer for an upcoming documentary about FKA Twigs‘ Baltimore dance workshops has been shared online.
In July, the artist and former backup dancer gave free classes taught together with her choreographers in the US city.
The workshops, which took place in Baltimore’s Lithuanian Hall, were open to “intermediate and advanced” level dancers, aged 18 and over.
The lessons were captured in an documentary about the initiative, Baltimore Dance Project, a trailer for which was released earlier today. “When things are difficult, art always flourishes,” Twigs says in the black and white teaser.
Last month, FKA Twigs “autobiographical” dance film Soundtrack 7 was broadcast on BBC Four. The 35-minute film includes elements of dance plus a recital of Thomas Wyatt’s poem ‘I Find No Peace’.
The project, which the singer described as “flesh, sweat, feeling, muscle; no air brushing, no frills”, was filmed at Manchester’s Old Granada Studios during her week-long residency at Manchester International Festival this July.
Soundtrack 7 is one of a number of projects the singer has been working on over the last year.
In November, she opened her ROOMS project in London, which centres around the singer curating a dozen artists to create a 12 room installation with each space inspired by a different zodiac sign.
She also said she is working on a new album but it’s unlikely to see the light of day any time soon.
