Filmmaker Luc Peter accompanies acclaimed Swiss contemporary dancer and choreographer Gilles Jobin as he and his eclectic troupe of dancers work on ?The Moebius Strip 2001 in London and Paris. Classically trained Jobin’s singular approach tells stories in a very special and specific way, where time is treated as an elastic, infinite strip. Capturing the essence of contemporary dance – a rich art form that combines movement, rhythm and use of space – Peter’s documentary gives a fascinating insight into how an artist like Jobin works and lives. Absorbing and intriguing, the film works well as a companion piece to Peter’s film about performance artist ?La Ribot, who is Jobin’s partner and the mother of his son.
THE MOEBIUS STRIP: The Geometry of Exorcism by Sylviane Dupuis
A sensual, fluid, hypnotic exploration of a “human sculpture”: the bodies of five dancers pass, cross, follow, intertwine with each other. A video of dance, adaptation of choreographer Gilles Jobin’s “The Moebius Strip”.
The Moebius Strip, created at the Théâtre de la Ville in Paris during the spring of 2001 became one of his most emblematic pieces. “On the stage, viewed as a white painting, bodies are thrown like splashes of colors, mixed as tint areas and given rhythm by the shades of the clothes” (Rosita Boisseau). This creation evokes his father’s paintings, Arthur Jobin, which alternate between geometrical rigor and intensive vibration of juxtaposed colors.
