Le Ballet de la Nuit (12th hour)
A film installation by Mihaela Griveva (BG) with music by James Hazel (AU)
The film is inspired by the transformation that occurs in nature in the time between the sunset and sunrise. The work explores the interaction between the Sun King represented by a female embodiment of a Goddess and the elements of nature. The film is part of a collective screendance work produced by International de Video Dance de Bourgogne depicting various artistic representations of Le Ballet de la Nuit (The Ballet of the Night), a 13-hour ballet which debuted the talents of fourteen-year-old Louis XIV as Apollo, the Sun King.
