Watch this dancer do battle with a beam of lightS

Feast your eyes on Nuance, a captivating short by artist Marc-Antoine Locatelli that features dancer Lucas Boirat interacting with an ever-morphing army of frenetic photons.

On second thought, it's hard to tell from the video whether Boirat is dancing with the light, or fighting it with everything he's got. Either way, the precision with which his movements seem to harness and guide the power of the light's geometric forms is as much a testament to Boirat's agility as it is to Locatelli's animation chops.
