Ostrovsky has been an enthusiast of Monnier’s dance creations since 1986, when she saw her inaction at the Avignon Festival.
“M.M. in Motion”was four years in the making and draws upon Ostrovsky’s filming of six Monnier choreographies (dating from 88 to 91), in rehearsal and performance. The key feature of the film is that it attempts to translate into cinematic terms the very essence and style of Monnier’s dances.
