An art video about the vital preparation of an aerobatic pilot before his flight. French pilots call this ‘la dance’.

 

A film exploring the limits of the human body in 3 dimensional space using the medium of aerobatic flight. To fly  an aerobatic routine, the pilot must first visualise the sequence on the ground, mentally and kinesthetically conditioning  his body to control the physiological reactions it will experience during the flight. 

French pilots  call this ‘La Danse’
