How important is the space, our childhood? Is it possible to affect one’s creativity? Alexander Ekman was interested in finding out if there are ways one can enhance and use the maximum forces of your creativity.
"It’s such a fuzzy word and an interesting, mysterious subject. I’m preparing for my next creation at the Paris Opera, which will be my biggest work to date, and I wanted to study creativity. Am I using my own creativity the right way, and are there ways I can become even more creative?" says Alexander Ekman about his new three-part television series.
In this innovative three-part series from Anna&Paul & Co, together with Swedish public service channel Sveriges Television (SVT) and choreographer Alexander Ekman embark on a journey to explore creativity and its mysterious ways.
