Stunning video for Briana Marela’s track, “Dani”

As a dancer and someone who knows women who are incredible aerial dancers, this video really struck a chord with me. The strength it takes to do this is completely masked by the absolute grace that comes with this physical strength. This video is beyond perfectly paired with “Dani”, a song about loneliness but finding hope and peace in the fact that no one really is alone. Specifically, it is about a mutual friend of Briana Marela and video’s aerialist, Jody Poth’s who struggled with depression.

Please watch and appreciate:

Jody Poth, the aerialist in the video, says about the song and video:

“I knew instantly that I wanted to collaborate with Briana on this piece; I could see how the nature of the aerial silk would create these artificial limits that a body can push through, just as in life.”

“Dani” is off of Briana Marela’s most recent full length, All Around Us, that was released earlier this summer. Catch her in Europe and New York this fall:
