Alice and other Wonders & Alice goes through the Mirror

Genre: Theater Play
Location: Théâtre de la Ville, Paris
Duration: 2×78′
TV Direction: Isabelle Julien

Auditorium Films presents Lewis Carroll’s famous plays: Alice and other Wonders & Alice goes through the Mirror

Alice and other Wonders
“Oh my goodness! Everything is weird today! Yesterday things were normal. Maybe I was changed during the night? Alice returns to surprise and intrigue us, to reopen the strange landscapes and worlds that arise during her adventure. A limitless adventurer, Alice is a child at the threshold of adolescence, capable of going back and forth between these two ages of life. The incredible story of her adventures continues to amaze adults and children, researchers and scholars, for more than 150 years through all eras. Without doubt, one could even prove that the more time passes, the more sciences progress, the more technologies upset our relationship to time and space, the more these adventures seem familiar and plausible to us.” Fabrice Melquiot.

Alice goes through the Mirror
“In the continuation of the adventures, the other side of the mirror is a little more disturbing than Wonderland. Alice finds the same White and Red Queens, even stranger, chatting with living flowers and a big egg-headed Humpty-Dumpty, who claims that even the meaning and shape of words are relative. In this strange world, everything goes wrong: time, memory, distances, up, down, real and virtual. Alice flies weightless in a staircase image and meets heroines who could be her descendants: Dorothy, from the Wizard of Oz, Zazie the Queneau kid, and Rose, a girl of today. By the way, who is in whose dream?” Odile Quirot

The Turn of the Screw by Benjamin Britten

Duration: 115′
Genre: Opera
Format: HD
Production Year: 2021
Directed by Jérémie Cuvillier

This is a strange story… Called to a manor house in the English countryside to take care of two orphans, a governess must face extraordinary phenomena: what happened to her predecessor and her lover? Where do the voices that the children hear come from? What is this past they can never seem to heal from?

Inhabited by the writing of Henry James – author of the short story that inspired it – The Turn of the Screw plunges us into a disturbing world where the concept of objective reality gradually dissolves.

In a musical 20th century that was bidding farewell to tonality, Britten took a different path. In the aftermath of the Second World War, he created the English Opera Group, which sought to re-found the lyric art with the economy of means implied by a world in ruins. For The Turn of the Screw, he composed music where harmony flirts with dissonance, just as ghosts rub shoulders with the living on the misty shores of Lake Bly.

La Cenerentola by Gioachino Rossini

Available for prebuy
Dramma giocoso in two acts, on a libretto by Jacopo Ferretti
after the tale Cinderella by Charles Perrault
created on January 28, 1817 at the Teatro Valle in Rome.

In Italian, with French subtitles

To create this jubilant, phenomenally energetic two-act musical extravaganza, Rossini asked his librettist Jacopo Ferretti to strip Perrault’s tale of its fairy tale elements. True to his reputation, he created a comic triumph in only three weeks: of Don Magnifico’s three daughters, Clorinda, Tisbé and Angelina (known as Cenerentola), which one is the most beautiful and generous? Faced with her two pesky sisters, Angelina will be able to guide the choice of Prince Ramiro, in search of the ideal woman. Still, it will be necessary to find Angelina after her precipitated departure of the ball. A clue should however put him on the way to facilitate the reunion of the lovers and the triumph of happiness. For this new production Alicia Geugelin returns to the Opera Orchestra, after her breathtaking staging of Virility.e.s, to bring out the explosive vitality of this Cenerentola.

– Ilya Silchukov: Dandini
– Paolo Bordogna: Don Magnifico

The Fly by Valérie Lesort and Christian Hecq

In production – available for coproduction and prebuy
Genre: Theater Play

In the 1960s, in the heart of a village, Robert lives with his mother Odette.
In his fifties, bald and paunchy, Robert spends most of his time locked up in the garage where he is trying to develop the teleportation machine. We witness the daily life of this strange couple, punctuated by more or less successful teleportation experiments.
As in Cronenberg’s film, based on George Langelaan’s short story, Robert tries to teleport himself, but a fly slipped into the machine, and the apprentice scientist is gradually transformed into a giant insect. His physical and mental transformations are reminiscent of those of Gregor in Kafka’s Metamorphosis. Robert will dehumanize himself little by little to become a beast capable of climbing the wall, driven by an insatiable search for food.

Body work, special effects, aesthetics of the time of the beginnings of computer science, La Mouche is a laboratory of scenic and visual experiments, an extraordinary playground.

Freely inspired by the short story by George Langelaan
Adapted and directed by Valérie Lesort and Christian Hecq
With
Robert: Christian Hecq, member of the Comédie-Française
Marie-Pierre : Valérie Lesort
Odette : Christine Murillo
Inspector Langelaan : Jan Hammenecker

Time and Space

In production – available for coproduction or prebuy
Genre: Dance, Krump
Director/Author: Jonathan Steuer
Duration: 6×5′ or 1×35′

Six stories, six places, six sequence shots and bodies in movement: this is the proposal of TIME and SPACE.
Whether in the street, in a desert or in a dilapidated underground, dance becomes the central element of a staging of singular stories, carried, for each episode, by an artist.
Between documentary fiction and dance clip, each episode will be the object of a different narration thanks to a style of realization which will be specific to it; the formats, the global tone, the references used will be different from one episode to another.

One of the specificities will be the use of a single sequence shot per episode. This allows the viewer to be totally immersed in the environment of the episode, in a fluid and raw way.
Each episode will highlight a different dance style or culture, classical, contemporary, hip-hop, etc. This allows for a variety of stories, offering the viewer the possibility of discovering universes that he or she is not familiar with.
