Swan Lake premiered at the Bolshoi Theatre in 1877, to the music of Tchaikovsky. What many people do not know is that the original version was a major fiasco and was quickly forgotten. This interested Alexander Ekman – the forgotten Swan Lake, a work about which we know nothing. Now he has chosen to recreate and freely poeticise over this first Swan Lake, the fiasco.

Screendance: A New Visual Language

Screendance (Dance on Screen) is a unique cinematic experience that merges cinematography and choreography. It stirs the imagination and adds a whole new dimension to understanding movement. The screendance genre offers stimulating and sometimes provocative films that, as the name invokes, are never purely about dance nor wholly concerning film. They might, in other words, depict movement in a conceptual context, with all the eccentricities screendance offers as a storytelling medium.
