FESTIVAL EXTRAS & SOÇIAL 2019
Boris Charmatz & César Vayssié (FR)
Les Disparates & Levée
A man is standing by a quay wall. A big ship sails by and brings him to tilting. The pull of the monster made of steel becomes the theme of the entire film: as gravity and as the breath of a body that is absorbed by the camera. For Les Disparates (2000), choreographer Boris Charmatz and director César Vayssié translated the dance piece of the same name that Charmatz created in 1994 together with Dimitri Chamblas into a film. Boris Charmatz himself dances the protagonist through this poetry of places, folds of time and phantasms of images. In Levée (2014), another film work by Charmatz and Vayssié, a group of young people gets into a desert landscape and therein into a dynamic that throws them to dust: a dance on the border of science fiction, based on the Charmatz’ dance piece Levée des conflits.
