La Danse vue par Norman McLaren

Haut de la page

An internationally renowned creator of animated films, Norman McLaren won his audience through innovative techniques that are also in evidence in his experimental films on ballet. Included here are: Pas de deux: By exposing the same frames as many as ten times, McLaren creates a multiple image of the ballerina, Margaret Mercier, and her partner, Vincent Warren (13 min. 22 sec.); Ballet Adagio: A slow-motion study of the pas-de-deux adagio, one of the most exacting and difficult dances of classical ballet (9 min. 59 sec.); and Narcissus/Narcisse: Dancers enact the tragic Greek myth of the beautiful youth who condemns himself to a trapped existence through excessive self-love (21 min. 47 sec.). A film without words.
