Director: (LA)HORDE – BRUTTI / DEBROUWER / HAREL
Synopsis: Ghosts is a new short film by (LA)HORDE with the Ballet national de Marseille soundtracked by Rone and scripted Spike Jonze, filmed in the Palais Longchamp in Marseille. When the Fine Arts Museum closes, figures take over the deserted place, embrace and tear each other, as if to recover their body, until their encounter with the night guard.
Bio: Since 2013, (LA)HORDE brings together the artists Marine Brutti, Jonathan Debrouwer and Arthur Harel. At the direction of the Ballet national de Marseille since 2019, the collective has created multidisciplinary and cross-community projects.
Through films and performances (LA)HORDE interrogates the political component of dance and maps diverse choreographic forms of popular uprising, from raves to traditional dances, to jumpstyle. Their exploration of the new dynamics of circulation and representation of dance and body that develop online led them to create the concept of “post-internet dances”. In 2021, with the Ballet national de Marseille, they invited for a mixed program choreographers Lucinda Childs ,Tania Carvalho, Lasseindra Ninja and Oona Doherty – each embodying their own iconic, inclusive and engaged conception of dance. By diversifying formats, (LA)HORDE questions the almost infinite serendipity that this new territory provides and proposes multiple perspectives on the uprisings of the communities with whom they work in a heterarchical way.
