William Forsythe : One flat thing, reproduced by Thierry de Mey( Visual )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 21 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

From a classical position by William Forsythe( Visual )

4 editions published in 2007 in 3 languages and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(From a classical position) William Forsythe, acknowledged as one of the greatest choreographic talents of our time, and his long-time collaborator Dana Caspersen, also of the Frankfurt Ballet, perform a duet conceived especially for the camera. From a classical position constitutes a one-off experience of Forsythe and Caspersen's work, giving dance lovers a unique vision of their work as choreographers, dancers and now film-makers. This piece is performed to an original score by Thomas Willems, a composition for a single piano, which like the dance, is at once naked in its simplicity and at times spell-binding in its complex intensity. To this sometimes-music and sometimes silence performance, Caspersen and Forsythe dance a duet of sublime passion and sophistication, a love story without sentimentality. (Just dancing around?) To produce this intimate portrait, Mike Figgis spent six weeks with William Forsythe at the Frankfurt Ballet, where he has been artistic director since 1984. A rare choreographic talent whose work is both intellectually and physically challenging, Forsythe makes a clear and articulate case for his method of deconstructing classical ballet. Figgis takes the role of fascinated outsider, pursuing his volatile subject with a dogged enthusiasm. The documentary focuses on the build-up to the first performance of Forsythe's The loss of small detail, and the soundtrack features the avant-garde music of Thomas Willems and Handel's Concerti grossi
