Pas de Deux by Norman McLaren


Norman McLaren’s 1968 film is not only one of the greatest ballet films ever made, it’s also an astonishing combination of high-contrast photography and optical printing. Choreography by Ludmilla Chiriaeff, dance by Margaret Mercier and Vincent Warren, music by Dobre Constantin and the Folk Orchestra of Romania. YouTube isn’t the ideal medium to watch anything like this but there’s now a quality copy here in all its 13-minute glory. If you’ve never seen it, do so before it vanishes.
