ABOUT DAU

DAU is an ongoing experiment, evolving from a biopic about a Soviet physicist into a large scale project – part cinematic cycle, part behavioural experiment – involving hundreds of participants from around the world. Combining elements of film, theatre, science, psychology, architecture, visual arts and performance, it has created a complex and absorbing world that has to be lived as much as seen. It’s release will take place in Paris, 2019.

DAU is ultimately a vast collaborative experiment. Many of its participants are celebrated figures in the fields of science, art, theatre and film and are now DAU’s ambassadors. These include physicists and mathematicians Carlo Rovelli, Dimitri Kaledin, David Gross, and Shing Tung Yau; conductor Teodor Currentzis; theatre directors Peter Sellars, Romeo Castellucci and Anatoly Vassiliev; artists Carsten Höller, Marina Abramovic, Boris Mikhailov and Philippe Parreno; designer Rei Kawakubo and many more…

Contributors to DAU voice overs include Isabelle Huppert, Willem Dafoe, Monica Bellucci, Hannah Schygulla, Isabelle Adjani, Iris Berben, Gerard Depardieu, Lars Eidinger, Fanny Ardant, Barbara Sukowa and others.

“Five years ago, a relatively unknown (and unhinged) director began one of the wildest experiments in film history. Armed with total creative control, he invaded a Ukrainian city, marshaled a cast of thousands and thousands, and constructed a totalitarian society in which the cameras are always rolling and the actors never go home..” Excerpt from Michael Idov’s piece for GQ magazine “The Set That Ate Itself” regarding the unreleased Ilya Khrzhanovsky film “Dau”. Michael Idov is interviewed by Joe Rosenberg about visiting the extraordinary set and production of DAU. From NPR radio. http://www.gq.com/story/movie-set-tha…
