Danse Élargie competition 2018 – The film (2018, 24’)

Fri and Sat at 6pm, 6.30pm, 7pm
Pina Bausch Room

Josselin Carré has followed the competition since 2012, filming the behind scenes (dressings rooms, backstage, staircases) as much as the stage itself. Following his own inspiration, he takes some of the groups of the 2018 competition out into the streets of Paris. His film expertly captures the anxiety and concentration of the artists, but also the joy and excitement, the exceptional moments when the groups merge together; a huge crash test in the gardens and at the final party. These moments make the candidates feel part of a community, much beyond the competition itself.

Josselin Carré is a film director specialising in Music and Dance. He films live concerts, and makes documentaries and portraits of musicians.
