Is it possible to define creativity, and the mechanisms behind it? What is creativity? Who is creative, and how does someone become creative? Award-winning choreographer Alexander Ekman has always been intrigued by what drives creativity forward, where it comes from, and whether or not it’s possible to contain and understand it. In a new documentary, Ekman dives into the subject by meeting scientists, professors, artists, film directors and choreographers, with the goal of trying to understand every aspect of the phenomenon. With dance, playfulness and creativity at its core, this 52-minute documentary tries, and perhaps succeeds, to analyze and describe what creativity truly is. Perhaps the answers in a way transcends Ekman himself. Also, during the production, Ekman has a grandiose assignment and careerdefining moment in front of him: a dance piece at the Paris Opera. Constructed of three acts, ”Creative” explores what creativity is through meetings with people like film director Lone Scherfig, professor Shelley Carson, choreographer Mats Ek, performance artist Marina Abramovic, Joffrey Ballet’s artistic leader Ashley Wheather, film director Tran Anh Hung, professor Linda Hill, film director Tiffany Hsiung, the CEO of the David Lynch Foundation, Bob Roth, and several others, Ekman tries to make sense of the abstract and oftentimes transcendental force that is creativity.
