In 2015, legendary musician David Byrne treated audiences to a performance spectacle unlike any other, bringing ten of the best color guard teams from across North America to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center to perform their synchronized dance routines (often involving flags, flips, tossed rifles and swords) to music composed for their performances by musicians like St. Vincent, Nelly Furtado, Ad-Rock + Money Mark, Nico Muhly + Ira Glass, and Byrne himself, commissioned by BAM and Luminato Festival. CONTEMPORARY COLOR is no mere concert documentary. As seen through the eyes of celebrated American documentary duo, the Ross Brothers (WESTERN, 45365), this tightly choreographed event is cracked open to make space for the performers’ hopes, dreams, homes and personal histories as they’re on the floor giving the biggest show of their lives. As the live music takes this little-known sport to new heights, the wildly talented and passionate superstars of color guard get the limelight they’ve always deserved.
