By In Dance, Films 52 min

Since 1990 choreographer is the artistic director of the , which resulted in a successful international tour with the play Anaphase. By integrating dance, theatre, (rock) music and film in short fast scenes this choreography exceeds the limits of dance. ANAPHASE THE FILM is not a documentary about this piece nor a registration of the performance, but a translation of the choreography to the film medium, making the film an autonomous artistic creation. The images in the film stem from three sources: live performances in the theatre, dancing scenes which were performed especially for the film, and rehearsals. Filmmaker aimed at a visual and auditive form that does justice to the thematic and sensual richness of the piece. The movements and the rhythm of the film offer the audience an overwhelming experience.

Winner of the IDFA Jury Award in 1996.
