William Forsythe One flat thing, reproduced ( Visual )
3 editions published in 2006 in English and French and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"'One Flat Thing' is a play for 14 dancers and 20 tables on the music of Thom Willems. Unanimously acclaimed by the press, this work of a strong theatrical intensity oscillates between disorder and [symmetry]. This very powerful creation gives rise today to a new work 'One Flat Thing Reproduced'. Realised 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 chore[o]graphic principles [developed] by Forsythe. The way he films, 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 to the audience the possibility of receiving this creation in a completely different way, outside of a theatre."--Mk2.com
