The Dancer

Drama

(FRANCE)

French singer/actress Soko and ingénue-of-the-moment Lily-Rose Depp lead a star studded cast in Stephanie Di Giusto’s spectacularly mounted screen biography, inspired by the true story of two rival pioneers of modern dance in late 19th-century Paris.

Nothing in her background destined Loïe Fuller (Soko), born in the American Midwest, to become the toast of the Belle Epoque cabarets – or to perform at the Paris Opera. Hidden behind metres of silk, her arms extended by log wooden rods, the athletic Fuller was able to reinvent her body on stage, enthralling her audiences every night with her revolutionary “Serpentine” dance. It was Loïe’s meeting with Isadora Duncan (Depp) – a beautiful young prodigy hungry for glory – that threatened everything: her stature, her confidence and her sanity.

“Electrifying. A spirited, fully committed portrayal that allows you to observe a quintessential artist from the outside in.” - The Film Stage
