Between the outstretched arms of a basket crane, Marie-Agnès Gillot and Dimitri Chamblas dance gently in front of Xavier Veilhan's low-tech camera.

The eighth episode of the Mutant Stage series sets free from the initial choreography through a low definition image and crystal-clear music by Jonathan Fitoussi.

 

“This project began with a meeting, a choreography staged and performed by Marie-Agnès

and Dimitri in my studio less than a year ago. For the first time I worked from an existing piece, a situation that I had not completely created myself. So I had to integrate a form of lyricism and sensuality, which are quite far from my usual tone. The quality of the image and the music differs from the live version by Bertrand Bonnello and echoes the distance

between my vision as a director and a film in which the movements do not belong to me.” Xavier Veilhan
