When a dance is video recorded in a dark theater, the movements are often difficult to see. Color inversion resolves the problem to some extent by changing blacks to whites and other darker colors to lighter ones.

Tonight, ElsyDance has released color-inverted versions of two theater dances: Drums and Moments. They will co-exist with the original videos.
