Juliette Binoche Goes East

I haven’t read much about it, but art house star Juliette Binoche’s latest thing is a dance project called In-I. The piece is a collaboration with London-based choreographer Akram Khan, who appeared in Peter Brook’s The Mahabharata and worked with Anthony Gormley. She’s currently in Hong Kong performing at the 37th Arts Festival. So have we lost the French beauty to the stage forever? Not quite. The South China Morning Post‘s Vivienne Chow is reporting that Binoche has been talking film projects with both Jia Zhangke and Hou Hsiao-Hsien. Binoche and Hou, of course, previously collaborated on Flight of the Red Balloon. But the idea of Jia giving Binoche the Three Gorges Dam treatment is certainly an appealing one.
