Short Film: THE EMBRACE OF THE VALKRIES, 17min., Canada, Dance

09a6247dcd posterThrough Scrape The Twilight, Alan Lake continues the symbolist epic begun with The film Ravages. In a variation of solos thought for his long-time collaborators, he advances not on his intimate territories, but on those of the interpreters. The piece shows a series of portraits revealing the moving layers of their interior landscapes, and this, in a multidisciplinary approach that combines dance, visual arts and cinema. These stories and fantasies are magnified beyond human experience, contributing to the enrichment of Lake’s own language and mythology.
