Yoann Bourgeois: Celui qui tombe // la Scène nationale d'Orléans

"Yoann Bourgeois se situe à l’exact point de rencontre entre les arts de la danse et du cirque. Son dernier spectacle, Celui qui tombe, rêve de l’exact “point de suspension” cher aux circassiens: l’instant imperceptible, ouvert à tous les possibles, où un objet projeté dans les airs semble marquer un arrêt avant de retomber. Celui qui tombe se joue sur un plateau mobile, qui ne cesse de s’incliner, tanguer, tourner, aller de son ballant. Six interprètes se tiennent dessus, faisant face dans l’instant au jeu des forces qui anime ce support, dont ils ne sont pas maîtres. Philosophiquement, on sera libre d’y voir une métaphore de la condition humaine. Artistiquement, voilà une nouvelle idée du geste: le corps reçoit une force, avant que de prétendre produire une forme. L’acteur accepte de se laisser traverser par les puissances du monde, au lieu de prétendre les soumettre. Et c’est vertigineux."

"Six performers appear to defy the laws of gravity, responding with strength and grace to maintain balance on board a constantly shifting platform."

Hollyoaks: visually dramatic wedding trailer

"Hollyoaks released its memorable 'Black Wedding' promo as build–up to the upcoming marriage of Mercedes McQueen (Jennifer Metcalfe) and Riley Costello (Rob Norbury). Set to the music of Billy Idol's sinister 'White Wedding,' this highly–stylized, artistic trailer was meant to convey the dark, foreboding mood surrounding the event, which was rife with lies, deceit, and even blackmail. Would the very pregnant Mercedes finally cave and confess to Riley that she'd had an affair with his own father, Carl (Paul Opacic), who was serving as his son's best man – or – would she go through with the ceremony ever–fearful that one of the villagers who knew her secret might stand up and tell all? The 45–second video, which was said to have taken 15 hours to film, was directed by Alex Boutell, photographed by Chris Sabogal. and edited by Kel McKeown (host of this1080p HD version at YouTube). And yes, according to Metcalfe, that really was black paint they put in her eye for the final teardrop shot – having joked at the time that it nearly 'killed' her!""
