Merzouki, dance alchemist

A film by Elise Darblay

A 52-minutes documentary-portrait

The film offers an immersion into the heart of Merzouki’s latest creation : Vertikal. In the middle of his troupe of dancers and close to Mourad, we participate in the creative process backstage, until the first performance – between doubt and creative impulse. With an objective : to defy gravity and create a visual vertigo. Through the choreographer’s confidences and moments stolen from his busy life, we discover his influences, his artistic career and his universe.
