The Story of Daphnis & Chloé

Directed & Choreographed by Benjamin Millepied
Featuring an original score by London Grammar

Passage to Dawn is a series of choreographed video tableaux created in partnership with renowned choreographer and dancer Benjamin Millepied. Maiyet commissioned the films, along with an exclusive track, “Where I Belong,” by London Grammar, as a complement to its Spring/Summer 2015 collection.

Millepied’s resulting creation, a modern “symphonie choreographique,” is based on Daphnis and Chloé, a Greek pastoral love story thought to date to the 2nd century AD. The project was shot using a super slow motion video camera and filmed on location in Los Angeles with the participation of dancers from L.A. Dance Project. Costumes for the cast were specially created by Maiyet, based on pieces from the SS15 collection.
