Torben Glarbo: Decoding

... with the subtitle: Tim Rushton’s Enigma... is a making-of-film, a fascinating observation of the process of setting up of a contemporary dance performance conceived and conducted by Tim Rushton.

When the producer of the film – Ole John – passed the dvd to me, his comment was, ”well, ballet is not your strong side”. Right he is but taking the viewer into a new world and environment is precisely what a good documentary can do. You learn something and you actually discover the similarities between a documentary director and a choreographer like Rushton, who works without any script constantly ”editing” the performance, trying something new, rehearsing with the dancers, finding the right rythm and balance adding light and music to get the right sensual expression.

Torben Glarbo has followed the process for seven months and conveys brilliantly the different moods of doubt, the collaboration and the experimentation. Movements in a rehearsal room are as born for the camera of Glarbo.

Some background info on the film which can be bought through the site below: Enigma’s choreography is inspired by Bach, with his six unaccompanied cello suites as its musical base. Jakob Kullberg plays the cello, and the accompanying electronic soundscape is composed by Mathias Friis-Hansen... Tim Rushton is originally from Birmingham, England and educated at the The Royal Ballet School in London. He has spent the past 15 years in Denmark as a dancer and choreographer, among others at the Royal Danish Ballet. Rushton has been nominated for the Reumert Prize 10 times and received it 5 times: in 1999, 2005, 2006 and 2008 and in 2010 for Danish Dance Theatre.

Denmark, 2010, 58 mins.
