Retrospective / Rétrospective
  • Year2019
  • Duration82 min

For his twentieth piece, rather than trying to produce something new, the choreographer Jérôme Bel casts a subjective eye over his previous works through a twofold gesture of compilation and liaison of filmed images. Going back through his video archives, he takes out twenty dances from his most significant shows and organizes them among themselves in order to reconstruct the development of his thinking about dance” Through these works, the audience’s preconceptions around who can dance and what is dance is challenged, with a great deal of humour.

Retrospective is screening in Sheffield on Saturday 31 October at 8:00pm
