Pilobolus and OK Go are nominated for a Best Short Form Music Video Grammy Award for the "All is Not Lost" music video. The music video was filmed in Woodbury's Old Town Hall on Minortown Road.
The Grammy Awards will air live on CBS at 8 p.m. Sunday, February 12.
"We are very excited and very proud that " has been nominated for a Grammy for best music video," said Woodbury First Selectman Gerald D. Stomski via e-mail. "The video was filmed in Woodbury's Old Town Hall during the spring of 2011. The town of Woodbury is honored to have played a part and assist in the production of this video."
"All Is Not Lost" is up against Adele’s video for "Rolling In The Deep" and Radiohead’s video for "Lotus Flower," among others, according to the Pilobolus blog.
Pilobolus will perform at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, February 10 and 11, 2012, at the Shepaug School Auditorium in Washington. Ticket information for Pilobolus shows in Washington is available on the After Schools Arts Program website.
A live performance of the dance from the "All is Not Lost" music video will take place at the shows, according to the Pilobolus blog.
"Working with Pilobolus – and of course with Trish [director and choreographer Trish Sie] was great because they share our belief that last century’s creative boundaries are irrelevant," said OK Go singer Damian Kulash in the Pilobolus announcement of the Grammy nomination. "These days, a great creative idea is a great creative idea, period. You don’t have to choose in advance whether your outlet is records or films or dances or a computer program. Videos don’t have to be subordinate advertising material for albums, and dance doesn’t have to be confined to the theater. We were like peas in a pod with Pilobolus, trying to make something that lives in the world of dance and music video and digital space, but isn’t confined to any of those spaces alone."
