Festival Phénomena and Tangente have invited Sasha Kleinplatz and Andrew Tay from the Wants & Needs company to create a special edition of Short & Sweet in the “old-fashion” spirit of Georges Méliès (1861—1938), the renown inventor of the first cinematic special effects, film director, stage designer, magician and mechanic. 25 choreographers will be given carte blanche to create whatever they like, but on one condition: the performance must be no longer than three minutes! Faithful to the tradition, the evening’s timekeeper will be merciless with artists who overstep the time limit. After three minutes, the sound and lighting will be turned off; a loud and clear message, no?
A Tangente co-presentation.
