DOC NYC 2020 Film Review

Director Aleksandr M. Vinogradov’s visually stunning 91-minute film about the Belgian choreographer Thierry Smits’s creating his new visually stunning contemporary dance piece, Anima Ardens – stirring up this reviewer’s collective unconsciousness and consciousness to a feverish pitch. The athleticism of 11 men, naked, whirling, pirouetting, dashing around huge alabaster stage as well as enmeshing and scrumming with arms and legs and heads and torsos going this way and that, rhythmically and synchronously and kinetically, forming and reforming edificial shapes and collages with human building blocks that expand and melt away into other forms and entities was transfixing.
