A Film about the Relationship between Dance and Words: A Work of Fiction in Four Chapters

Dance is difficult to summarize in words. From the moment we begin to use text to describe our experiences, their meanings become narrowed. Making use of ekphrasis, the description of an imagined or existing thing, but not a physically present work of art, the film begins with a series of interviews that reveal how we do or do not talk about, understand and remember a performance. Sara Manente and Christophe Albertijn set words into dance and dance into words, literally.

Thanks to 3D technology they made themselves, Manente and Albertijn double the images, consequently literally representing the way in which the multilayered character of dance is represented. Film, dance, everything is in three dimensions, in order to show the complexity of translating from one medium to another.


After the performance we'll invite you to a conversation with Sara Manente & Christophe Albertijn and Caroline Godard. Caroline Godart (PhD in Comparative Literature, Rutgers University, USA) is a philosopher and a dramaturge, and the author of the book The Dimensions of Difference: Space, Time, and Bodies in Women's Cinema and Continental Philosophy (2016).
