Nijinski, mon âme s’envole en dansant

Art and shows, Dance in Auxerre
From :  10 Full-fare

    The evolution of a first founding solo, Nijinsky, my soul flies away dancing, returns to the figure of the artist who revolutionised his art at the dawn of the 20th century, before "flying away" into madness when he was not yet thirty. How to approach the enigma? Conceived in two parts, this spoken-danced portrait first takes us on a documentary trail, based on photographs, video images of reconstructed pieces (L'Après-midi d'un Faune, Le Sacre du Printemps) and the clinical writings of the American doctor Peter Ostwald.

In this back and forth between word and movement, genius and madness... Serge Ambert signs a fascinating choreographic biopic.
