Friday Song

Sergei Polunin filmed by Anton Corbijn, dancing to Depeche Mode’s In Your Room

It’s not so much about the song, it is about the emotions this rockstar of ballet conveys and how beautifully Anton Corbijn captures them.

The song In Your Room was written by Martin Gore and appears on Depeche Mode’s 1993 album Songs of Faith and Devotion.

Long time readers probably know that it is the first album I bought from my own money and that I still love it.

Anton Corbijn caught my attention in my youth. I like the way he takes pictures, often black and white and he just seems to know how to capture the essence of his models.

As for Sergei Polunin; the first time I noticed him was when he danced to Hozier’s take me to church and again in the movie the Dancer (2016), a film that is about his struggles, his love for dance and his hate for it too. Very interesting one.

Have a great weekend.

  1. You’re still so very young – at least in comparison to me; my first album purchase was “Meet the Beatles” in 1964!
    The video of Sergei Polunin dancing to the Depeche Mode song is gorgeous. Perhaps it’s because I’m gay, but I much prefer male dancers over females. It’s their athleticism and the beauty of the male body that make them so much more captivating to watch. And, like you, I also generally prefer male singing voices over females.

    1. I don’t know if it has to do with you being gay, but there is a certain aesthetic when men dance. The muscles and the emotions… I like the male body.
      I try liking female voices, but there are only very few that I like.

      And Jeff, you are not old. You probably don’t agree, but you have a young soul and mind. đź’ś
