Two color screen print with double-hit inks.
Hand-printed in the UK by White Duck Editions.

Poster is designed in two color variations, that join when positioned next to each other. Logo designed by Dan Perri.

"We decided to base our design around the 'Volk' dance performance which appears late in the movie. The dance is such a pivotal scene, full of all the right kinds of tension and energy. We set about creating the design as if it were a poster for Volk, almost so one could imagine the artwork appearing on a wall within the film itself. We wanted it to feel authentic to the movie, part of the story almost. To achieve this, the design needed to feel like it wouldn't be out-of-place in a 1970s German dance school. For example, the teeth elements down the side of the poster are a reference to the floor tiles that feature in the reception of the school. When two posters are placed side-by-side they form an arrow just as they do on the floor.
The movement and body shapes in the routine led us to look for visual inspiration in Hindu art, specifically depictions of Nataraja, The Lord of Dance. This triggered the idea of a circular shape, representing the cycle of life. We imagined Dakota Johnson's hair as fire representing light and dark, with her holding the fate of the dancers around her. At the center, an eye shaped opening reveals itself. All of which hopefully becomes clearer after experiencing the movie!" -- La Boca
