Alex Prager’s La Grande Sortie tells the story of a prima ballerina, played by the French dancer Émilie Cozette. Shot in the Ópera Bastille, the setting is the opening night of the dancer’s return to the stage after an unexplained hiatus. The ballerina’s fears manifest in a series of awkward dances, each accompanied by an antagonistic audience member (played by retired Paris Opera Ballet dancers and teachers) magically transported from their seats to the stage. Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich composed the film’s score, taking samples from Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring. The film embodies an anxiety that many people have around performance and success, culminating in a fantastical vanishing act.
