"Amelia" is one of the greatest works of the modern times that better combines multiples artistic disciplines, reminding us the benefits and the possibilities of putting different ways of expression together: theater, classic/contemporary dance, performance, music and cinema.

Édouard Lock, creator of "La La La Human Steps" dance company, is the choreographer and the director of this filmed version, which is totally different from the original work designed for the conventional "stage". In this exclusive version for (tv) screens, Édouard Lock moves forward all the way through new methods of filming dance, turning what sometimes appears to be only ordinary movements into meaningful sequences, ordered according to a narrative scheme that may not be easy or consensually understood.

David Lang's original music score (soft, childish and enigmatic), in articulation with special lightning and cinematic effects, creates a rare atmosphere of elegance, beauty and tension, combined with true experimental, gracious and sometimes impolite approaches.

It is not about exposing the body in symbolic or in metaphoric terms, but in a physical and in an emotive way. The spectator must feel the characters as humans, more then simply watching them as mechanical perfect dancing machines. Mostly because they have feelings and concern about the same terrestrial things we do. In this aspect, there is an obvious intention of bringing back dance to a large amount of people.

It is definitely an original, artistic and beautiful multidisciplinary masterpiece.
