This film shows some frames before the performance and then focuses on the movement, emotion, and strength that the dancers show onstage.
Really well produced, I think it gives a good idea of important moments and sensitivities expressed.
I loved to see both performers so devoted to the piece and giving themselves to being present. Amazing work!
Ana Laguna is her name, dancer of the Cullberg Ballet for more than 30 years. Mijaíl Barýshnikov is the other dancer and I believe they have an amazing chemistry.
Mats Ek created this piece and turns out to be Ana’s partner. They have worked together for many years, as she was the ballerina prima in many of his productions in Cullberg.
Check out this dance performance with contemporary moves, a great soundscape and the responsiveness of the artists.
