Canadian dancer/filmmaker Anne Troake‘s choreography for steam shovels, Pretty Big Dig, is funny and beautiful. By substituting machines for the familiar human body of most dance performances, she isolates the geometric forms and patterns of organized movement without the emotional elements. Thanks to Maria Popova (@brainpicker) for posting it on Twitter.
