FKA twigs has shared a new 'Practice' video showing the methodology behind her 'Cellophane' clip.
FKA twigs returned with the bold new single a few weeks ago, subsequently sharing a dramatic full length video.
The performer takes a starring role in the clip, an incredible pole-dancing routine that shows unbelievable core strength alongside her intense creativity.
She commented at the time: “throughout my life I’ve practiced my way to being the best I could be, it didn’t work this time. I had to tear down every process I’d ever relied on. Go deeper. rebuild. Start again.”
Now a new clip has emerged online, with 'Practice' - directed by AnAkA - demonstrating some of the methodologies that lay behind the full video.
FKA twigs wrote online: "Sometimes when I write something that’s really vulnerable like ‘Didn’t I do it for you?/Why don’t I do it for you?’, in the centre of myself, I know that that’s a very human feeling..."
"So when I thought of the video concept to be asking somebody ‘Didn’t I do it for you?’ while doing these amazing tricks on the pole and getting your life – to me, there’s something almost humorous about that. I’m sure other people won’t see it that way but to me it’s sick and it’s funny and it feels powerful.”
