MONROWE MAGAZINE — Charles Billot / Re•hears•al

The Re•hears•al, the arcane performance that lies behind the curtain. Filmmaker Charles Billot captures the subtle power of these intimate performances through this exclusive short for Monrowe. Featuring the most recent ballet by celebrated choreographer Emery LeCrone, we are presented with a mesmerizing dichotomy of strength and vulnerability. Dance remains one of the purest forms of storytelling, connecting with viewers on a rich and visceral level regardless of cultural, political or language barriers. Billot uses the movement of the human form to feed a deeper narrative.
