Graph Rabbit Releases Winter-Themed Ballet Video

By on December 13, 2012

Using the sets of The Nutcracker, full theater lighting, snow machines and eight ballerinas dancing on point, the video creates a storybook tableau that takes the song fully into its intended fictional realm of snow and disorientation.  Lead singer Austin Donohue dances the lead role of the bewildered wanderer who is blown about and ultimately won over by the falling snow, which is played by the ballerinas.

 

Conceived of and directed by Christopher Vetur and choreographed by Orlando Pena, the video was filmed in an historical landmark theater erected in 1923 in the small town of Patchogue, NY.

 

The song – with its constantly changing time-signatures, seemingly infinite interlocking xylophones and frail high-falsetto chorus – is fusing the musical sophistication of prog with an endearing sincerity that is quickly putting Graph Rabbit on the musical map.
