8 Songs

London

A series of choreographed juggling vignettes set to 8 classic rock and roll songs. A tribute to the mythical landscape of popular music. From Dylan’s stream of consciousness realms to the Velvet Underground’s troubling landscapes, from David Bowie’s soulful escapades to the rocking Rolling Stone’s anthemic joy de vivre.
