PROGRAMME

L’Âge d’Or

Time Reversal Symmetry

Entangled

Light Moves Innovative Use of Sound Award

Entangled responds to Matthew Whiteside’s score in three movements, each a response to a different facet of the work relating to physicist John Stewart Bell.

Les Indes Galantes
(France, 2017) 5’47’’

This striking film blends the music of Jean-Philippe Rameau with krump, a dance style that grew out of the riots following Rodney King’s beating in Los Angeles, in the 1990s.
