Kylie Minogue premieres video for 'Dancing'
Kylie Minogue has premiered the video for her new single 'Dancing'. The video, directed by Sophie Miller over two days at London's Bush Hall, re-imagines Minogue in collaboration with Dolly Parton on the set of "The Day of the Dead" - with a depiction of a 1970’s Nashville motel room thrown into the mix.
The video also displays Kylie’s talent for re-appropriation as it features a £12 guitar, customised with hundreds of crystals, which director Sophie found in a junk shop - echoing the legendary 50p hot-pants that came to define the video for ‘Spinning Around’.
Kylie said of the video “Life’s all just moments which all join up - some of them are great, and some of them are less than sparkling - but ultimately I wanted this video to reflect the celebratory nature of the song”.
Learning the choreography, which was based on an interpretation of line-dancing, presented a slight challenge to the normally adept Kylie as it involved a completely different style of movement. Kylie says;
“I always thought I could learn routines quickly but this was different. However, by the time I had to dance with the Grim Reaper at the end I had mastered it. And if that’s not a funny allegory for life I don’t know what is!”.
