Linoleum Short Film, Audience FEEDBACK from the May 2020 Experimental/Dance/Music Festival

LINOLEUM – Alain Chamfort / Cie Niki Noves, 6min., France, Music

Directed by Niki Noves

In a dark room, we find two men forehead to forehead, sitting on the floor, heads connected by a helmet with an organic look. They are surrounded by silhouettes motionless and tense. In parallel in a sanitized white space, these two men face each other at a distance. They seem to have the power to influence the behavior of the other. Their violent and fierce manipulations quickly blow them to the limit of the knockout. This struggle has the effect of animating the individuals around them in the dark space. Alain Chamfort is the link between these two spaces. He is the witness and the narrator. He walks in the dark towards a ray of light. In the air there are particles that gradually draw a yellow landscape, a chaotic exterior that indicates a post-apocalyptic era. A child appears in the distance through the yellowish fog. He walks in the midst of a group of women and men of all ages walking in the same direction, looking out at the horizon of a new land.

THE EMBRACE OF THE VALKRIES, 17min., Canada, DanceDirected by Alan Lake

Through 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.
