CIRCUS

Circus_Edit_01_HiRez.00_10_18_17.Still174-2

The music video for Circus represents two different states that we often find ourselves in as humans.  When we critique/judge someone or something, from a position of authority. Or when we gift a part of ourselves to the world in the form of art, to be critiqued/judged, from a position of vulnerability. 

This concept was executed by having two clearly defined lighting, emotional and energetic states. The lighter, more relaxed “superficial/surface” state has punters walking around the band, observing their performance, critiquing their music, how they look and move. The band in this state are quite passive, vulnerable - the artist.

The darker, more aggressive, frenetic state represents what is happening underneath the surface, the deeper layer of emotion and human psyche.  Here, we see the punters are in a state of fear and anxiety.


It’s a circus
It’s what you wished for
It’s a calamity just for you
My eyes
Are burning sore and red
Crying not to wind up dead
My highs

We judge others often because we judge ourselves, therefore underneath the surface, there will always be some degree of pain. We can’t be gentle and care for others. until we are truly gentle and care for ourselves.

The artist, underneath, feels more comfortable in this place than most. It is a practice, that every time they gift a part of themselves to the world, they are making the choice to experience vulnerability.  They have a deeper understanding and appreciation towards others that area also in this state.  From being humble and vulnerable actually comes a power and strength, an enlightenment.

Lilly, the little girl represents those that have not yet been judged or tarnished by certain parts of the world and society.  She is wide eyed, genuinely taking in her surroundings, not only the music and performance, but also the people around her and how they are judging the band, each other and themselves.   Lilly absorbs this way of being, much like our children copy their loved ones. Fortunately, she passes through this way of existing quickly and although she has an evil smile at the end, it actually represents her joining the band in a place of vulnerability, enlightenment. Which equals power.
