Nine nude ballerinas pose on New York City’s cobblestones in the middle of the night for a series called “Dancers After Dark” by photographer Jordan Matter.

What happens when you combine the talents of Russia’s ballet bad boy Sergei Polunin, Irish gospel luminary Hozier, and photography pop wizard David LaChapelle? A whole lot of angsty, sexy, beautiful dancing. LaChapelle directed the new visual interpretation of the Grammy-nominated hit, starring British Royal Ballet vet Polunin performing choreography by Jade Hale-Christofi. The emotive dancer, donning only nude tights and a cluster of tattoos, sautéstombés and pirouettes through an illuminated empty space. The white room clashes with the dark energy of the bluesy song, making Polunin’s stunning dance moves resemble some kind of spiritual possession. Watch in full screen.
