“Crowd,” Gisèle Vienne’s epic dance piece, is physically and mentally demanding. 15 young dancers give themselves fully to this complex exploration of the ‘90s rave scene. As they tour the world, the performance evolves and grows more complex. The dancers immerse themselves in their characters, and the characters, in turn, leak into the off-stage world. In interviews and behind-the-scenes conversations, the dancers wonder about the boundaries between their characters’ lives and their own. The result is a celebration of music, movement, physical intimacy, humor, and thoughts on the thin line between art and life. The film won the Teddy Award for best LGBTQ-themed film at Berlinale 2020.
