Divine Solitude
Canada / 28:00 / 1986 / sound / colour
A performance film featuring dancer-choreographer Nana Gleason, whose solo works are an incisive and spellbinding alchemy of modern Western dance forms and Far-Eastern traditions.

"Nana Gleason makes of her art an almost monastic exercise that follows its own set of gestural imperatives. Most notable is the way she flirts with a nameless physical otherness, sometimes through the use of physical extensions (a single platform boot, an extra long arm). She is a compelling figure, lovingly revealed in Lariviere's film." - Robert Everett-Green, The Globe & Mail

"Lariviere, supported by the discreet cinematography of Peter Mettler and Kemp Archibald, has kept his distance, eschewed bravado and made a beautiful work of art." - Toronto Festival of Festivals, 1986
