Play Serious

T. M. Rives’ documentary 𝗣𝗹𝗮𝘆 𝗦𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗼𝘂𝘀 is a film probe into the staging of the choreography Play, brought to the stage of the Paris Opera Ballet by the progressivist choreographer Alexander Ekman. The quest for a strong, original and visually futuristic form goes hand in hand with an in-depth research of the human behaviour and creativity. The path is an eruptive one, paved with discoveries and insights about the creative essence of human beings. The resulting piece will follow in the second part of the night with a screening of the full-length version of Play, recorded right at the Paris Opera. This is a chance to get closer to the choreographer who turned the orchestra pit into a lake of millions green balls.
