The Pike and the Shield

The Pike and the Shield: Five Paradoxes Danced By Nozomi Iijima, inspired by CHANEL Nº5 L’EAU

Japanese ballet dancer Nozomi Iijima performs a self-choreographed video directed by Lola Partel Oliva, inspired by the paradoxes of Chanel’s latest fragrance campaign for Nº5 L’Eau. Equal parts surreal and spectacular, the film features Nozomi dancing the paradoxes of her own life and art through the streets of Tokyo and beyond.

Danced and choreographed by Nozomi Iijima
Written and directed by Lola Partel Oliva
