Visa - Breakout the Violins
WATCH IN HIGH-DEFINITION
Screening at HDFEST Seattle December 6, 2009
Back to HDFEST Seattle Schedule
VISA's “Breakout the Violins” is a mysterious, visually astonishing piece that is rich in detail, featuring a unique blend of gorgeous, yet bizarre costumes, intricate sets and choreographed dance numbers. The story centers around a vaudevillian, circus-like show set up by a troupe of vagabonds (played by members of the band VISA) alongside a cast of supporting characters (featuring members from Lucent Dossier Vaudeville Cirque). The music video presents an indulgent feast for the eyes while depicting farce, romance, satire, comedy and rock & roll; filled with artistic, sexy and outlandish visuals... the tongue (planted firmly) in the cheek.
