Eldorado, by Olivier Assayas (90’)
This movie aims at following very closely the genesis of Eldorado (Sonntags Abschied). It highlights the echoes between partition and movements, to see the birth of collisions, fightings, but also exchanges, the way gesture becomes extension of sound, so far as abstraction.
The sweetness of gestures, the arms flapping like wings, floating caresses and a new collusion with Karlheinz Stockhausen’s music, these were the elements Preljocaj used to translate this “voodoo sound form”, as he describes Sonntags Abschied.
