Abstract solo dance piece by pioneering American choreographer Alwin Nikolais (1910-1993).
Loie Fuller is a 1901 French short black-and-white silent film.Some copies have been stencil-coloured in Segundo de Chomon's Barcelona workshop.
The film depicts a serpentine dance by Loie Fuller.
She went all out at all times: Loïe Fuller, the early avantgardist and inventor of the “serpentine dance”. Choreographer Ola Maciejewska from Paris has discovered the silk moth (Bombyx mori) as a metaphor for the critical potential in Fuller’s spectacular dance costume: movement as an interplay between body and object. Maciejewska’s fascinating “flights” of three black “serpentine moths” are such hybrids as well, defying classification as either one or the other.
