“Statures of Gods is an exploration of the art of movement; either sculpted or through the expression of dance. When the statues of Paris become one with three ballet dancers, captured frozen in jumping movement, truth is found in the shared reach for beauty.

Starring Victoria Dauberville, Thomas Docquir et Paul Marque from the Opera National de Paris.”

“Hoosier Quilt” by Shari Wagner (Excerpt)

We take our fabric from the
Field that Lincoln plowed;
The same earthmound builders aligned
With the movement of stars.
We choose our colors from the trees
As they traveled toward winter…

Amsterdam-based artist and director Ruben Van Leer’s latest film is a high-energy portrait of professional tenor and amateur boxer Frank Engel, made in collaboration with the Dutch National Opera with the aim of attracting a different audience into its drama-filled world. Here, Van Leer talks about the story behind the film:

“This film is about the courageousness of self-expression. A battle with the self is the ultimate revolution. Frank is a boxer and a tenor in the chorus of Amsterdam’s Dutch National Opera. In the film he’s fighting his demon, a shadow of himself.

 “A battle with the self is the ultimate revolution”

“His fear of going on stage is bigger than that of death, of finally letting his voice be heard to the public and mastering his art. I wanted to make a tiny opera film: an existential theme that resonates within the streets, outside of theatre walls.”
