Gilles Jobin : Le voyage de Moebius – documentary 53′ (V.O: Fr / Subtitles: En) (2002)


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.
