Dance in 42 countries
The little dance of Matt, jadore! ! ! It took him 14 months to make this little film, in 42 countries.
Matt performs his funny little jig among crabs on a beach in Australia, in the rain in Zanzibar, in the jungle of Borneo. At the foot of pyramids in Guatemala, on the cliff of the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa, in front of the sugar loaf of Rio de Janeiro ...
In his first videos, which made him known, Matt Harding danced by himself. For the 2008 video, he dances with local people he met during his travels: a gang of kids in a village in Madagascar, passers-extras in Singapore, Paris or Jerusalem, and even Papuans in New Guinea.
And like me in Bali with mola-molahe also dances underwater with a big fish in Tonga. On his video 2006 (to see on the site of Stride Gum, the chewing gum manufacturer who sponsored his world tour), he multiplies the underwater dances. Hilarious!
