Produced in association with Bravo!, DANCE WITH ME is a hip, two volume exploration of dance, choreography and space. The two volume set consists of six episodes each: dance pieces by leading Canadian contemporary dance companies in a variety of locations. The director, Albert Girard, found six very particular and different ambiances for the dancers to work in. The visually stunning locations are part of the concepts. The 12 x 24 minutes films are shot in a sport shop, warehouses, a church and an empty swimming pool amongst others. The locations and the spaces influence the choreographical choices.
The dance pieces are colourful, hectic, sensual and poetic comments on human relationships.
The dance companies presented are:
Danse Carpe Diem, Louise Bedard Danse, Dance Cite, Systeme D, Manitowapan, Les Sortileges Sinha Dance, Creation Cafeine, Lucie Gregoire Danse, Montreal Dance, Lina Cruz (adult themes), Danse-Cite / Manon (adult themes)
The volumes are excellent resources for choreographers and dance students as well as Cinema Studies for their exceptional visually rich filming techniques. Great examples what dance can be presented on film.
The volumes are available individually or save 10% when buying the set.
