Girl Walk//All Day: An Infectious Urban Dance Marathon

Girl Walk//All Day: An Infectious Urban Dance Marathon

Girl Walk // All Day is the newly-released debut film from director Jacob Krupnick, a piece of visual art painted with the colors of New York City, where the residents don’t even blink when a seemingly goofy young woman in a windbreaker starts dancing like a crazy person right through a park in broad daylight. The twelve-act movie uses All Day, the latest album from Girl Talk (Gregg Gillis), as its narrative force. The music provides a deeply emotional soundtrack to 71 minutes of dancing, as the three main actors dance their way through New York, from the High Line to Central Park, to the subway, to Occupy Wall Street and back.

Girl Walk // All Day: An Amazing Musical Dance Video of Epic Proportions

Girl Walk // All Day: An Amazing Musical Dance Video of Epic Proportions

Girl Walk // All Day is a musical dance video directed by aspiring art photographer Jacob Krupnick, a collaboration by Krupnick and high-intensity freestyle dancer Anne Marsen. In mid-December, Krupnick and Marsen were on the early-morning Staten Island Ferry, along with two other dancers and Krupnick’s wife, carrying boomboxes and cameras and ducking security guards, shooting a guerrilla-style trailer for Girl Walk //All Day, which Krupnick describes as “an epic, 71-minute-long dance-music video” in which Marsen will dance her way through the entire Girl Talk album and up the entire island of Manhattan.

It is no surprise that people are going crazy about the trailer. It is both weird and joyous, popping with youthful energy. At first, Marsen looks more like an enthusiastic and slightly dorky amateur than the trained dance professional that she really is. Marsen wears regular tennis shoes and worn gray cords and an oversize, multicolored jacket, and at one point she falls off the railing of an escalator. It’s not until a minute or so in, as she twirls and gyrates through the ferry’s upper level, staring down the camera with a sly smile on her face as sleepy commuters pretend not to notice, that you begin to suspect you’re watching something that’s more than a little magical.
