Acclaimed choreographer Akram Khan’s new creation is captured by Academy Award winner Asif Kapadia (Senna), in this immersive and stunning film.
Director: Asif Kapadia
Based on the acclaimed English National Ballet production, choreographed by Akram Khan and directed by Academy Award-winning director Asif Kapadia, this is a genre-busting collaboration that fuses film and contemporary dance. In a dilapidated former Arctic research station, Creature (Jeffrey Cirio) is unknowingly enlisted by a military brigade into an experimental programme. He meets and falls in love with Marie (Erina Takahashi), a cleaner who shows him kindness and compassion; together they dream of escape.
Drawing on Georg Büchner’s expressionist classic Woyzeck, as well as elements of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Creature contemplates themes of alienation, impossible love and the desire to belong.
