Absolute copy

Mikko Kallinen

A futuristic dance video where the original dancer’s geometric gestic vocabulary is copied with 100% exactitude by his clones. The dance starts with the original dancer’s solo in-between massive metallic architecture. Later, the original dancer is confronted by the clones and eventually mixed in with them. At the end the clones are unified and oppose the original by using their collective synchronised mind.
