DESPERATE MEASURES

Phoenix X Subversus

Richard Cilli, Juliette Barton, Claire Edwardes
Directed by VERSUS

“When I’m inside Phoenix I feel elevated, and I can’t help but respond to that in a way that is creatively elevated. 
The film is a meeting of artists each incredible in their own right. These artists in this space: it’s creative dynamite, and I love the explosion we made.”

Richard Cilli

“I am so grateful for the way this project brought together interdisciplinary artists for one greater good. It was such a treat to create and collaborate in this way.”

On Set | Behind the Scenes

“The music was performed and captured live and the choreography was malleable so that it could respond to the location and set-up we constructed around it. This live-ness coupled with the extraordinary, frenetic performances by Richard and Juliette imbued the film with a tension that we hope is palpable.”

Tanya Babic, VERSUS – Director
