Rétrospective is Jérôme Bel’s subjective reflection on his own work. He chose eighteen dance fragments from his video archive. Through meticulous editing, he has used them to reconstruct the development of his thinking about dance. By emphasizing the links between dance and politics, he foregrounds central themes in his work. After the film screening, there will be an extended conversation with the choreographer.

Episode 7 pays tribute to Citizen Kane and the conventions of Hollywood’s black and white films. Episode 8 takes an entirely different direction, as a Cinemascope colour film with wide, uninterrupted shots. No prior knowledge is necessary: a cinematic newsflash-like introduction will concisely summarize the story so far.

The improvisations of the American choreographer Steve Paxton to Johann Sebastian Bach’s Goldberg Variations are unforgettable for anyone who ever witnessed them. Paxton began the project in 1984 and stopped in 1992. For ten days, video artist Walter Verdin followed the movements of the improvising Paxton and edited a striking 54 minute-long dance film.
