CREATURE is an exceptional, genre defying collaboration between choreographer Akram Khan and director Asif Kapadia. Based on the acclaimed English National Ballet production, the story is set on a former Arctic research station, where Creature (Jeffrey Cirio) ends up being enlisted in this military programme, and begins to plot his escape with cleaner Marie (Erina Takahashi). From intimate dances to striking collective routines, the choreography is stunning and immersive, with the atmosphere of the film being elevated by sharp framing and bold performances. The fusion of film and contemporary dance is simply mesmerising and is a notable title in Kapadia's diverse body of work.
