“During creation, every new ballet seems a possible film. When developing the idea of filming ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, I insisted on planning a true ballet film which, for me, is completely different than a documentary. I intended to put the audience into the ballet, to bring it closer. Within the three days of recording, we did not schedule a single complete run-through of the work. Instead, we recorded the film in sequences and with exciting camera positions which can be compared to the way one would film a drama. What we really love when watching films, is the immediacy, the vibrancy of the moment. The camera being so close, means that we don’t want the dancers representing something, we don’t want them presenting something, we want them simply being – ‘now’. We want that spark of truth that springs towards us and that touches us.” – John Neumeier.
