Reset (Releve: Histoire d'une creation)

When: Feb. 2-4, 7:30 p.m. 2017

French choreographer Benjamin Millepied is perhaps best known for his work in the film Black Swan, both for playing the role of the Prince and for choreographing all the dance scenes. In Thierry Demaizire and Alban Teurlai's documentary Reset (Relève: Histoire d'une création), we witness Millepied create his first ballet for the Paris Opera Ballet as artistic director. Reset takes you deep into the process of how a ballet is created, from the selection of dancers through rehearsals, the lighting design and even the construction of the stage. The Webster Film Series screens Reset at 7:30 p.m. Thursday to Saturday (February 2 to 4) at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; Tickets are $5 to $7.
