Hightech production Frame by Frame lights up National Ballet

center_img Login/Register With: Twitter Lepage has returned to McLaren for his latest project Frame by Frame, teaming up with the National Ballet of Canada and the National Film Board to create a multimedia dance production that marries ballet and abstract film animation in hopes of pushing the boundaries of ballet for our technological era. Director Robert Lepage first saw Norman McLaren’s short animated films as a child, when they aired as part of Hockey Night in Canada. He was moved by their simplicity and emotional impact.“There is something very pure about his vocabulary and very accessible and very universal,” says Lepage.“I’ve always related to that because I am desperately looking for simple things, resources, ideas that can speak to a universal or international audience.”last_img
