|a"'One Flat Thing' is a play for 14 dancers and 20 tables on the music of Thom Willems. Unanimously acclaimed by the press, this work of a strong theatrical intensity oscillates between disorder and [symmetry]. This very powerful creation gives rise today to a new work 'One Flat Thing Reproduced'. Realised by Thierry de Mey - one of the most important directors of dance films - designed this film as a full work. The theatrical disposition was studied especially for the shooting, permitting three cameras to shoot the action from different points of view. He catches chore[o]graphic principles [developed] by Forsythe. The way he films, touched by the looks and the exchanges between the dancers, permits to have clear the complexity of creation.
