First Congress are delighted to share the official video for upcoming single Good Problem, released August 19th 2016. The video stars 28-year-old Australian dancer Sarah Jane Potter who explores the song’s themes of conflict and tension with movement. Sarah moved to the UK from Queensland to find the opportunities to properly explore her exceptional contemporary and balletic skills amongst the richness of our European culture. Watch here.
First Congress’ leader, Tom Van Can said of her, “Sarah was a real trooper; I’m a boxer and I know 3 minutes in the ring – the length of a boxing round – is a killer and dancing the 3 minutes of the Good Problem choreography is probably harder and she danced the whole thing 32 times – imagine any boxer doing that!”
Sarah danced in an old 1940’s tennis court now overgrown with silver birch, nettles and thistles. Sarah joked, “Where I come from the animals attack you. I never thought in England I’d get attacked by plants! Stinging nettles, who the hell invented those?!”
The video also has guest appearances from Clyde the Harris Hawk, who Sarah loved working with, “I love animals and I felt I had a real connection with this wonderful wild raptor”, she says, “I had no fear just respect!”
