Lara Barsacq and her two creative accomplices, Marta Capaccioli and Marion Sage, celebrate Ida Rubinstein, the mythical Ballets Russes dancer.
The Brussels-based French choreographer has a close connection with her family’s heritage. For this new piece, she draws on historical elements which she combines with a personal assemblage to illustrate the unorthodox personality of Ida Rubinstein, Diaghilev’s muse, who commissioned Ravel’s Boléro. In this ode to feminism and art, the three performers converse in turn with the woman who continues to inspire generations of artists. "A hymn to poetry and dance, as an invention of self."
