Watch Sergei Polunin Perform a Beautiful Ballet to Hozier’s ‘Take Me to Church’
Hozier’s international smash hit, ‘Take Me to Church,’ has steadily maintained a firm grip on the ears of listeners everywhere. And with a nomination for Song of the Year at last weekend’s Grammys (and our top pick for Best Music Video of 2014), it doesn’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon. Now, a video has emerged online, depicting Ukrainian dancer Sergei Polunin performing a beautifully choreographed ballet to Hozier’s famous song, giving the track yet another life.
The Irish singer’s soulful anthem makes a fitting backdrop – along with the stark white, cathedral-like building with streaks of light and trees visible through its open windows – as Polunin gracefully makes his way across the deserted room.
The video is all the more striking thanks to Jade Hale-Christofi’s choreography, director David LaChapelle’s impressive photography skills and, of course, Polunin’s – who’s a member of the British Royal Ballet – immense talent. Check it out in the video above.
