In a new fear film Suspiria (out Nov. 2), Dakota Johnson plays Susie Bannion, a immature lady who travels from Ohio to attend a prestigious — if rarely surprising — dance academy in Berlin. “She takes a place of a dance tyro who has recently left and immediately becomes one of a tip dancers in a academy,” a Fifty Shades of Grey alum tells EW of her latest role. Susie develops an “intense and beautiful” student-teacher attribute with Madame Blanc (Tilda Swinton), “and afterwards we learn that a dance academy is run by witches!”
The many considerable dance stage in this reconstitute of executive Dario Argento’s classical 1977 apprehension story is a open opening of a slight “Volk” — German for “people.” Inspired by a pre-WWII fashionable expressionist dance movement, a method was dreamed adult by a film’s choreographer, Damien Jalet, and is soundtracked by an instrumental from a film’s composer, Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke. The choreography is also partial of a witches’ grand design.

That opening builds towards a larger protocol that is during a core of a film.”
The expel members in a dance wore outfits done from wire designed to simulate a bloody goings-on decorated elsewhere in a film. “We hand-knotted any dress in red subjugation wire in a atelier, to give it a feeling of drizzling blood,” says dress engineer Giulia Piersanti. If that isn’t creepy enough, a choreography was in vast partial commanded by a witchiest of symbols. “We were relocating on a points of a pentagram, as yet a dance were casting a spell,” Johnson reveals.
The scariest partial of a stage for a singer did not engage a movie’s abnormal shenanigans, though a fact that she had to dance in front of a throng of strangers; there were tangible assembly members to watch a performance. Says Johnson, “I lerned on and off for about a year before we started filming, though I’m not a veteran dancer. It was terrifying.”
