Danced by the Forsythe Company, Germany.
ONE FLAT THING REPRODUCED
“One Flat Thing Reproduced " is a play for 14 dancers and 20 tables on the music of Thom Willems. The World Premiere took place in Frankfurt in 2000 and it was presented at the Palais de Chaillot last July. Unanimously acclaimed by the press, this work with a great theatrical intensity oscillates between disorder and symmetry. This very powerful creation gives rise today to a new work "One Flat Thing Reproduced". Directed by Thierry de Mey - one of the most important directors of dance films- designed this film as a full work. The theatrical disposition was studied especially for the shooting, permitting three cameras to shoot the action from different points of view. He catches choreographic principles developed by Forsythe. The way he shoots, touched by the looks and the exchanges between the dancers, permits to have clear the complexity of creation. Thus, appear very evidently : the aesthetical beauty of shapes, the intensity of the movements and also the human side, thanks to the exchanges of looks. This new experience offers the audience the possibility of receiving this creation in a complete different way : emotionally as well as intellectualy.
