Spike Jonze's Live Dance Film on "The Tonight Show" (Audience POV)
ByRight Word Media
Spotlighting fashion label Opening Ceremony ’s pre-spring 2018 collection, “Changers: A Dance Story,” written and directed by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Spike Jonze and featuring choreography from Ryan Heffington (perhaps best known for his work on music videos for Sia, and collaboration with Squeak E. Clean on the Cannes-winning “Kenzo World” ad), and staring Lakeith Stanfield (from the film “Get Out” and the television series “Atlanta”) and actress Mia Wasikowska (“Alice in Wonderland”), is wordless performance piece that follows the peaks and valleys of a young couple’s relationship.
Following its premiere during fashion week, “Changers” enjoyed a sold-out, five-night run at the East Village theater LaMaMa, with proceeds from ticket sales going to the Hurricane Harvey relief fund. Additionally, Jonze, Wasikowska and Stanfield gave an abbreviated performance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. On the show Jonze explained that plans are in the works for the piece to be released online in the near future.
