Michael Laub / Remote Control Productions (NL/BE)


This piece features not one single film, nor ten nor twenty either. Instead, some 200 films appear in Rolling within the course of ninety minutes. After his success at ImPulsTanz 2017 with Fassbinder, Faust and the Animists, Belgian choreographer, director and cineaste Michael Laub returns to Akademietheater with a brand-new production. Two years ago, the subject was Fassbinder’s Beware of a Holy Whore, now he presents scenes and quotes from celluloid classics, art films, blockbusters and milestones in film history. Laub creates not only a tribute to the medium of film but a breath-taking immersion into the world of running, flickering and dancing images from African, European, Asian and American productions. All these masterfully orchestrated excerpts and fragments offer the audience a series of new and unique perspectives and narratives in an ecstatic sampling: the work of an artist of conviction.
