Hemera – Awakening of Spring depicts a dance of a lady bug on the last day of spring just before summer breaks out. The wind blows still cold and wild waking up the lady bug and calling her for learning to fly. Through hardships and metamorphosis, the lady bug finds a new celestial body and grows herself wings that lighten her up ready for take off. Hemera – Awakening of Spring is a non-linear choreography for camera where new choreographical layers are built in the post-production of the video. The music for the video was composed before the filming, thus the music was guiding the choreography both during the shooting and editing processes. The shooting location is an old preserved military area now taken ower by vegetation on the coast of Helsinki. The video belongs to new wave contemporary dance video series "Under the Stars", a collaboration between choreographer Laura – The Light of All and visual artist Sara Pathirane.
