The Art of Baroque Dance [electronic resource]: Folies d'Espagne : From Page to Stage

Loading...
This video explores the elements of 17th century Baroque dance, charting the historical preservation of dance, from the academic page to its transformation into a vibrant performance. For this we can thank France's Louis XIV. An excellent dancer, he ordered the invention of a notation system for dance to teach, codify, and spread this art. This film examines one dance, "Folies d'Espagne," selected because it features short highly expressive variations--each with its own temperament--to inspire the choreography. During the course of this video, the creative process of researching, reconstructing, re-creating, and performing a Baroque dance is fully explored. Includes full performances of Pecourt & Feuillet's "Les folies d'Espagne pour homme" (1704) and Feuillet's "Les folies d'Espagne [...]

Hit and Run [electronic resource]

Loading...
Co-produced by CoisCéim Dance Theatre and Rough Magic Films, "Hit and Run" is a dark, edgy dance film about the disintegration of a young urban gang whose lives are changed forever in one night. Their story is portrayed in a visually rich movement narrative that brings a new dimension to Irish cinema. The film centres on the story of one night in the life of an urban gang of eight characters who meet up in a large derelict building. It is large without apparent limits, a maze of corridors, stairs, halls, landings, machinery, cathedral-like vaults and dark pits like futuristic dungeons : an industrial forest of dead technology. But it is also, in its own way, a magical place, a place of transformation, and those who enter will not leave unchallenged or unchanged. In this story, only s [...]

Jewels [electronic resource]: Ballet in Three Parts

Loading...
The Mariinsky Ballet (formerly known as the Kirov) is probably the world's greatest ballet company with an astonishing heritage and is home to many of the most celebrated dancers. The ballet tours regularly, as well as performing throughout the year in St Petersburg. During 2011 it visits the USA, UK, Spain, South America, Japan and South East Asia. Before emigrating to the West, George Balanchine studied in St Petersburg and was a member of The State Academic Theatre, now known as the Mariinsky. However, Jewels dates from late in his career as a choreographer, and was premiered at the New York City Ballet in 1967. Although it did not receive its first performance at the Mariinsky until 1999, it has since become a core part of the company's repertoire which it has performed globally. [...]

Khmeropédies III [electronic resource]: Source/Primate

Loading...
Khmeropedies III is the third part of a collaboration with choreographer Emmanuele Phuon. Between 2009 and 2011 Phuon worked with Amrita to create Khmeropedies I & II and in 2012 returned to develop Khmeropedies III. 'Khmeropedies III is the continuation of a project that wants to develop a specifically Cambodian contemporary language in dance, based on Cambodian cultural elements and Cambodian Classical dance. It is the encounter of a contemporary dancer, myself, with Cambodian dancers. In this process everyone learns from each other. Khmeropedies III takes its source in the study of monkeys, as did the old masters in the tradition of the monkey role. We follow the same path, adding modern resources such as video footage and scientific studies of primates. Eric J. Sargis, Professor [...]

Moana [electronic resource]: The Rising of the Sea

Loading...
VAKA, DRUA, AND MOANA were created and produced as a trilogy of films that focus on the art of canoe voyaging in the Pacific. VAKA is about the traditional art of canoe building on Fiji, DRUA is about collaboration in double-hulled canoe building among Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, and Kiribati and the demise of this art form when steam ships arrived in the Pacific, while MOANA is about the symbol of the double-hulled canoe as a hope for rising sea levels and the human effects of climate change on the Pacific Islands. All three originated from the Oceania Center for Arts, Culture, and Pacific Studies (OCACPS) based at the University of the South Pacific and are informed by scholarly research. They were conceived by Vilsoni Hereniko who was the Director of the OCACPS from late 2008-2010 in coll [...]

Drawing its inspiration from an unusual illustrated encyclopedia, peopled by strange animals and imaginary plants, Tricodex invites us into a bizarre world, where elastic dancers can embody the infinitely small as well as the vertiginous immensity of the cosmos. Choreographer Philippe Découflé made a name for himself with his "Clog Dance" for the "Bleu Blanc Goude" pageant directed by Jean-Paul Goude for the celebrations on 14 July 1989. He directed the opening and closing ceremonies at the Albertville Winter Olympics in 1992. This is his first collaboration with the Opéra de Lyon Ballet, for whom he produces the fourth version of a project he has been working on for the past twenty years.
