WOOLF WORKS
The first revival of Wayne McGregor’s critically acclaimed ballet triptych, inspired by the works of Virginia Woolf.

The pioneering literary work of Virginia Woolf is the inspiration for multi-award-winning choreographer Wayne McGregor’s brilliant triptych for The Royal Ballet. McGregor has long been at the cutting edge of ballet, working with collaborators from across the artistic world, and in this critically acclaimed work he combines themes from three of Woolf’s landmark novels – Mrs Dalloway, Orlando and The Waves – with elements of her letters, essays and diaries.

Acclaimed British composer Max Richter (Infra, Sum and Recomposed by Max Richter: Vivaldi, The Four Seasons) creates a specially commissioned score incorporating electronic and live music.

COSI FAN TUTTE
Prompted by Don Alfonso, a cynical old philosopher, two young idealists decide to put their lovers’ fidelity to the test. But love will teach them a bitter lesson: those who believe themselves phoenixes and goddesses will discover the desires of the flesh... In 1790, one year after the French Revolution, in what would be their final collaboration, Mozart and Da Ponte conduct a scientific investigation of love. The music of Così fan tutte is truly extraordinary – complex in its symmetry, jovial and yet infused with an almost sacred melancholia. An extraordinary score where each note seems intended to make us accept a loss – lost paradise, lost youth, or a lost loved-one – and portray a world where all is in a constant state of flux. This laboratory of eroticism could but inspire choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker, who excels in revealing a work’s innermost geometry on stage. With six singers doubled by six dancers, she depicts the desire which unites and separates human beings, like the interactions between atoms that, once broken, make new bonds possible.

By contrast, Laura's world is ever changing. New dreams come to her almost daily. Paterson loves Laura and she loves him. He supports her newfound ambitions; she champions his gift for poetry.

MAD MAX FURY ROAD : BLACK & CHROME
Mad Max – Fury Road is back on the big screen in a new black and white edition. ‘’More authentic and elemental’’, according to director George Miller, the cut and dry nature of the visuals follows suit. While the washed out splendor of the movie’s visuals is what made it unique, taking that approche is equally as unique. A chance to discover (or rediscover) this epic film in a whole different way.

GOETHE INSTITUT présente EVERYONE ELSE (STF)
This page refers to the French subtitled version of the film. For the English subtitled version, please visit this page.

In this edgy comedy drama from director Maren Ade, Chris (Lars Eidinger) and Gitti (Birgit Minichmayr) are a couple whose relationship has more than its share of ups and downs; she works as a publicist for a rock group whose career is going nowhere in particular, while he's an architect who hasn't been able to persuade anyone to build one of his designs just yet. While Gitti's career isn't much, it's enough to give her head-of-the-household status, to Chris' chagrin. Chris and Gitti are spending some time at his well-to-do family's summer home in Sardinia, and they seem to be getting along relatively well until they meet another couple vacationing nearby, Hans (Hans-Jochen Wagner) and Sana (Nicole Marischka). Hans is an architect like Chris, but unlike Chris his career is in high gear, while Sana is a well-respected artist. Hans isn't afraid to display his alpha-male status in their relationship, and Chris' attempts to emulate him add to the tension between him and Gitti, while she isn't sure what to make of a couple who seem so outwardly happy.

"Like Cassavetes' A Woman Under the Influence, Ade's film is as unpredictable and ambiguous as it is raw." -MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE

“Brilliant dissection of a relationship and, more subtly, of class relations in contemporary Germany.” - The Hollywood Reporter

“Ms. Minichmayr and Mr. Eidinger are beautifully matched and so believable as a couple that you never doubt their intimacy or the emotions of their characters. They fit together as easily as they slip apart, with a naturalness that is rare on the screen… the film’s uninflected realism and unforced beauty alone make it worthy of exploring and revisiting.” - New York Times

JOURNEY IN SENSUALITY
“The world will only be happy when all people have the souls of artists.” - Auguste Rodin

After the international success of Breath Made Visible, Journey in Sensuality brings new insight into Anna Halprin’s influential artistic work. Auguste Rodin's sculptures and Anna Halprin's creative process come together with the music of composer Fred Frith in this poetic film of dances in nature.

While in Paris for a major retrospective of her career at the Centre Pompidou, the American dance pioneer Anna Halprin reflects on her devastation of the images the pervasive violence in the world and seeing the most unimaginable horror of tortured, starved bodies at the Holocaust Museum. In the hopes of lifting her spirits, she visits the Musée Rodin, and is so deeply moved that she decides to create a performance based on Rodin's sculptures; expressing her vision, like Rodin, of the human body being a reflection of nature, something innocent, true and beautiful and the world's need for artistic beauty.

Rodin's sculptures spoke directly to her kinesthetic sense. His knowledge and struggle to capture the expression of the nature of the human body connected directly with her vision of dance. It also spoke to her lifelong quest for non-stylized, authentic movement.

This one-hour film, Journey in Sensuality – Anna Halprin and Rodin, offers for the first time ever in her 70+-year career, an intimate view into Anna Halprin's creative process and the making of a performance. It shows how she prepares the dancer, using Rodin's sculptures as a container, to create a performance that is at once authentic and visually powerful and touches the audience on an emotional level. The movement of the dancers and images of Rodin sculptures are supported by the brilliant, innovative score by composer, Fred Frith.

ERASERHEAD (35MM)
David Lynch’s magnificently nightmarish debut feature never fails to impress. The film is a bizarre and darkly surreal mix of drama, body horror, grotesquery, black comedy, and mystery, all shot in a stark black and white over an unsettling industrial noise soundtrack. Initially opening to small audiences, the film gained popularity over several long runs as a ‘’midnight movie’’. In 2004, the film was preserved in the National Film Registry by the United States Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". Here’s your chance to experience this unique masterpiece in a restored 35mm print !

LE SONGE D\'UNE NUIT D\'ÉTÉ
Numerous choreographers have delved into Shakespeare to find dramatic material for their ballets, beginning with Jean-Georges Noverre, an ardent defender of the “action ballet” and Marius Petipa, who was the first to use Mendelssohn’s stage music. George Balanchine, who also loved the score, would prove no exception. In 1962 he created his version of Shakespeare’s comedy for New York City Ballet. Faithful to the Bard’s vocabulary whilst adding a subtle touch of pantomime, he portrays a complex love story in two acts and six scenes. Theseus, Duke of Athens, and Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons, become caught up in a domestic quarrel between the king of the elves and the queen of the fairies which results in the intervention of the mischievous Puck and his magic potion along with a troupe of amateur actors. The denouement is celebrated in the form of a grand virtuoso entertainment. One of George Balanchine’s rare narrative ballets, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is entering the Paris Opera Ballet’s repertoire. The sets and costumes for this production have been designed by another magician of the stage, Christian Lacroix.

RAMMSTEIN PARIS
In this state-of-the-art concert film, renowned Swedish director Jonas Åkerlund (Black Dog Films) takes a radical new approach to capturing the emotion and thrill of Rammstein’s one-of-a-kind live performance. RAMMSTEIN: PARIS is a fast-paced feast for all senses: a dark and spectacular fairytale laced with controversy, don’t-try-this-at-home theatrics, plus the all-consuming aroma of Benzin.

Rammstein has long been in an über-league of its own when it comes to taking the live presentation of rock music to new heights, both in terms of conception and execution. Catching this excitement on film is an almost impossible task. All the senses are stimulated at live events in a way that can’t be replicated onscreen.

Jonas Åkerlund’s extraordinary film RAMMSTEIN: PARIS is the closest anyone has ever come to cracking this dilemma. His creative rendition of the all-new stage production the band delivered at Paris Bercy in March 2012 takes the art form to a whole new level. This fast-paced state-of-the-art concert film is a visual feast, a celebration of Rammstein live that is both different to and in some ways better than being there – and a definite contender for the best concert film of all time.

AFTERIMAGE (STA)
A story of Władysław Strzemiński, an avant-garde painter, who did not give in to socialist realism being ruthlessly enforced by Communist regime in the post-war Poland. The tragic consequences of a struggle for artistic freedom in the totalitarian system of power unfold at first slowly, but gradually lead a charismatic, defiant man into the abyss.

AFTERIMAGE becomes a multilayered, intellectual battle on a role of art and freedom of expression; a film - caution; a film about a man / an artist destroyed by the system; a film on how dangerous it is to fuse political power with a will to shape people's consciousness.
