12 Days of Performance: Harry Alexander and Rachel Chinouriri



To see out 2018 with a bang we’ve brought together some of our favorite dancers, musicians, movers, and shakers to share their genre-breaking powers in a new series of capsule performances directed by NOWNESS‘ own creative director Bunny Kinney.

We’ll be releasing a new film each day for twelve days, holding a mirror up to the diverse creative worlds we’ve explored over the past twelve months.

t’s hard not to be captivated by the graceful moves of dancer Harry Alexander. Featured in the recent NOWNESS x Barbican collaboration Leap, celebrating their Modern Couples exhibition, Alexander performs an improvised dance inspired by the soulful sounds of 19-year-old singer-songwriter Rachel Chinouriri. This year the London native’s quietly addictive track “So My Darling” was brought to life by her self-directed video

“We’re celebrating true craft and talent in a joyful way,” says Bunny Kinney about 12 Days of Performance. “Each film is a small, simple portrait of an artist or ensemble performing an improvised work. We asked everyone to just let go and do their thing, and each of them worked with us on the overall creative direction of their video—which will be brought together into one final, collaborative film”

Enjoy 12 Days of Performance then watch the full film on Christmas Day
