They Dance With Their Heads

08’27, Canada, 2021

Director, producer, co-choreographer, painting and drawing (on paper): Thomas Corriveau; Music: Guido del Fabbro; Sound: Olivier Calvert


The severed head of a choreographer is held captive by an eagle on a desert island. With a dazzling mastery of drawing and painting, this animated short unexpectedly takes us into the sensitive world of an artist madly in love with dance.


Thomas Corriveau made his first films in the 1980s and pursued a career as a visual artist, working mainly in the fields of drawing, painting and animation. His works are part of various private and public collections and he has exhibited regularly in Canada and abroad. He is a professor at the School of Visual and Media Arts at Université du Québec in Montréal. After a two-decade hiatus, he returned to animation and is now fully involved as an independent director.


Филмът ще бъде част от прожекцията на 29.10.2022, 19:00-20:30, Фестивален и конгресен център – Варна.
