TEDxAmsterdam 2011 Human Brain #1 (dress rehearsal) – click if video does not play above

TEDxAmsterdam human brain with bodies

A beautiful trailer created back in 2011 for TEDxAmsterdam featuring 48 dancers from The Dutch National Ballet moving together to create the shape of a brain. The trailer features what was a dress rehearsal for the brain created by human bodies in a series of three that were performed live at TEDxAmsterdam in November 2011.  The piece is the brain child of Amsterdam-based creative agency We Are Pi and is narrated by actor Rutger Hauer with music by Pigeon Horse Sex Tennis.  Can’t believe I missed this one back in 2011!
