The location is the tetrapylon gateway at Aphrodisias, Turkey, near sunset. The city is named after the love-goddess Aphrodite, and is famous for its marble carvings.
The video shooting was done in about a quarter of an hour, while the light was good, and while the people who were trying to close the site were waiting patiently for us. We had no way to play any recorded music, so Esha was dancing to the rhythms in her head, and this explains why the fit of her movements to the music, which would normally be very precise and interpretive, are somewhat approximate.
