Watch Diver Perform Expressive 6-Minute Dance in One Breath at World’s Deepest Pool

Tuesday, May 8, 2018
Some people have trouble dancing on dry land, let alone underwater – but this free diver managed to perform a stunningly beautiful 6-minute dance at the bottom of the world’s deepest swimming pool.
Not only that, but she managed to do it in a single breath.
Free diver Julie Gautier, who is married to fellow diver Guillaume Néry, choreographed a gorgeous underwater dance routine at the bottom of Y40.
The routine was then made into a Vimeo short film called Ama. Since it was released and selected as a staff pick, it has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times.
Gautier describes the video by saying: “Ama is a silent film. It tells a story [that] everyone can interpret in their own way, based on their own experience. There is no imposition, only suggestions. I wanted to share my biggest pain in this life with this film. For this is not too crude, I covered it with grace. To make it not too heavy, I plunged it into the water. I dedicate this film to all the women of the world.”
