Watch this FKA twigs-choreographed dance from Catch Me Daddy

The avant-pop star helped stage a Patti Smith-soundtracked scene from Daniel Wolfe's psychological thriller

Four months ago, we exclusively revealed that as well as releasing a Mercury-nominated album, collaborating with London krump krews and working with Google Glass, twigs had also turned her hand to choreography on the Daniel Wolfe-directed film Catch Me Daddy

Catch Me Daddy is set in Yorkshire and follows Laila, a British Pakistani girl, on the run from her family after they discover her relationship with her white boyfriend. Twigs choreographed Laila's wild, unrestrained dancing to the Patti Smith track "Land" as her lover watches from the sofa. In an interview with Dazed, Wolfe describes the scene as "the heart of the film" and explained the key role twigs played in bringing the scene to life.

"Sameena (Ahmed, who plays Laila) had never danced before, so we got twigs to come up to Yorkshire, and she spent a couple of days with Sameena, and really helped her – even on a psychological level. Sameena had never danced, literally never danced, so twigs was really brilliant with her, she helped her overcome that obstacle of being in your early 20s and dancing in a room full of people."

Wolfe describes Catch Me Daddy as a "modern-day Western" and refers to the sound design as a "codeine/cocaine fuelled nightmare". Sounds good, right? The film comes out this weekend.
