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.
