Heather Ogden Dances In Breathtaking 'Lost In Motion II' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

When a dancer is on stage, what does she feel? What emotions course through her as she performs, vulnerable and expressive, in front of hundreds of people?

It's something that a new short film by director Ben Shirinian aims to explore.

Starring Richmond's own Heather Ogden (who is now a principal dancer with The National Ballet of Canada), "Lost In Motion II" is the sequel to Shirinian's successful 2012 film "Lost In Motion."

The second installment of this gorgeous video features Ogden dressed in red, reaching through movement that is at times both powerful and subdued. Leonard Cohen's "Avalanche" plays as the dancer, who trained at The Richmond Academy of Dance, sweeps across a dark and rocky landscape.

"Lost In Motion II" was choreographed by Guillaume Cote, who was the star of the original film and is also a principal dancer with The National Ballet. Adding another meaningful layer is the fact that Cote and Ogden, who met through the company, are now married.
