When members of a dance troupe are lured to an empty school, drug-laced sangria causes their jubilant rehearsal to descend into a dark and explosive nightmare as they try to survive the night and find out who’s responsible – before it’s too late.
Loosely based on the true story of a French dance troupe in the 1990s, “Gaspar Noé’s cinematic dance party will blow your mind” – Gregory Ellwood, Collider.
The 2019 psychological horror directed, written and co-edited by Noé features unusual cinematography choices, including several long takes and one lasting over 42 minutes. The film’s dizzying and psychedelic visuals are energised by it’s on-the-spot improv from the cast, who who were provided no lines of dialogue beforehand and had almost complete liberty as to where to take the story and characters. Produced by A24, the film stars actress and dancer Sofia Boutella.
