The Great Ghosts by Yoann Bourgeois, music by Schubert Monuments in Movement at the Pantheon

About

Finding a space for a contemporary scenic installation to exist in harmony with the centuries-old Panthéon in Paris—set to music by Schubert, alongside an intensely personal statement of artistic intent—is no easy task. But for dancer and choreographer Yoann Bourgeois, also trained in circus arts, the home of the famed Foucault pendulum is the perfect space in which to explore the limits of balance and perpetual motion.

The acrobatic skill, striking visual components, and artistic audacity of this piece earned it the Best Live Performance Capture award at the San Francisco Dance Film Festival and Best Film at the dancescreen competition. Watch this truly original, boldly cinematic work and you’ll understand why…
