Watch David Byrne and St. Vincent Rehearse for Their 'Love This Giant' Tour


In our ongoing fascination with the collaboration between David Byrne and St. Vincent, we’re thrilled to find this eight-minute video from their final rehearsal before the Love This Giant tour. NPR Music takes us behind the scenes to see Annie Clark curled up into a ball onstage, Byrne practicing his “cross-country skiing” arm motions, and tease each other like old friends. We also meet the woman responsible for their unusual moves, choreographer Annie-B Parson. Aside from the obvious — that it’s always fun to watch Byrne dance — the video is worth watching for both its beautiful cinematography and its insight into how two famously excellent performers arrange and interpret their music for an audience of thousands.
