For the sixth consecutive time in a row, Belgrade Dance Festival, Yugoslav Film Archive and Vip Mobile, are showcasing films dedicated to dance, under the title “Days of Dance”, from January 25th to 29th. During the event, a total of 10 films will be screened.
Days of Dance was officially opened on January 25th, at 7pm, with the film called “Play”, based on the eponymous dance & music theatre piece made by the Swedish choreographer, Alexander Ekman. The piece had its premiere last year at the Opera Garnier, and was immediately made into the film because the producers were aware that due to the play’s huge set design, the best thing to do would be to film it on stage.
“Play” evokes the world of childhood and its careless pleasures. But beyond pure entertainment, this performance contemplates the meaning and the importance of play when we become an adult.
