On Thursday, June 22, the FICBUEU will screen a session dedicated to the French collective (LA)HORDE at the MARCO in Vigo, free of charge. Entry is free-of-charge until seating capacity is reached
Bueu, June 7, de 2023 — The FICBUEU will organize an event this month of June featuring a unique screening session in collaboration with MARCO, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Vigo. The initiative aims to promote the short films of (LA)HORDE, an artistic collective founded in 2013 by Marine Brutti, Jonathan Debrouwer and Arthur Harel.
Leading the Ballet National de Marseille since September 2019, this collective creates choreographic works, films, video installations, and performances, with the moving body as the central focus of their work. Through the interaction and juxtaposition of different mediums, they develop scenarios and actions that address radically contemporary themes and issues.
The session, with an approximate duration of 45 minutes, will begin at 7:00 p.m. in the Auditorium of MARCO in Vigo, with an introductory presentation by the FICBUEU team, providing an overview of the collective’s trajectory and body of work.
GHOSTS: a short film by (LA)HORDE with the National Ballet of Marseille, soundtrack by Rone and screenplay by Spike Jonze, filmed at the Palais Longchamp in Marseille. When the Museum of Fine Arts closes, the figures take over the deserted place, embracing and tearing each other apart, as if they wanted to reclaim their bodies… until they encounter the night guard.
A ROOM WITH A VIEW: in this music video, (LA)HORDE continues to explore ways of protesting and rebelling through dance. The video and motion capture allow the representation of the unimaginable, questioning physical relationships with the group with more violence and strangeness through possible collapses.
CULTES: this film captures a specific moment of the manifestation of worship, which translates into ritualized practices, behaviours, collective ecstasy, and mass consumption. Is the body, its excitement and celebration the stronghold for this mass consumption? Can this state transcend the uncritical space in which it unfolds?
NOVACÈRIES: a combination of film, performance, and homemade video that transcends dance films, presenting a choreographic and metaphysical portrait of the post-industrial world by reinterpreting post-internet dance.
The choice of (LA)HORDE as the protagonist for this screening is due to both the quality of their work and the regular presence of their short films in the Discoveries Section of the festival in recent editions. In September 2023, FICBUEU will celebrate its 16th edition from September 9th to 23rd, bringing a series of screenings and activities related to international cinema to Bueu once again.
