Cinedans - Alexander Ekman: PLAY SERIOUS
In Play Serious director T.M. Rives follows the Swedish choreographer Alexander Ekman during his first collaboration with the dancers of the prestigious Paris Opera Ballet for the performance Play. The documentary Play Serious shows the intensive work process, full of adversity and doubt, of a breath-taking performance of this talented choreographer.
Beforehand we present the short dance film Ekman's Concise Guide to Natural Movement by Ekman and T.M. Rives. Dance Film SF commissioned this short for SFDFF’s Co-Laboratory programme. It is neither concise, nor totally natural, but pure Ekman.
