Ghosts is a short film and collaborative project by a coalition of artists operating at the peak of their respective fields. Featuring performances by the dancers of Ballet National de Marseille, it was directed by pioneering dance collective (LA)HORDE, soundtracked by acclaimed French producer Rone, and scripted by the visionary filmmaker Spike Jonze.
The film follows (LA)HORDE’S earlier collaboration with Rone on Room With A View, the musician’s 2020 show at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris and sees the dance collective extend their ongoing artistic exploration of uprising and rebellion through the lens of movement and dance. Set and filmed in the Fine Arts Museum of the Palais Longchamp in Marseille, Jonze’s script follows a single, apparently invisible protagonist as she meets a cast of similarly invisible characters, all trapped within the grand, deserted building.
The release of the short film is associated with the release of a three-track single including two versions of the original theme and an unreleased track featuring French SF writer Alain Damasio.
