La danseuse Belgium, Czech Republic, France 2016 – 108min.
Born in the great American West of the nineteenth century, Mary Louise Fuller dreams of art and theater. But nothing hints that this farm girl is predestined to become the glory of Parisian Belle Epoque cabarets, much less that she will dance at the Paris Opera. Hidden under meters of silk, her arms extended with long wooden sticks, she becomes Loïe Fuller, reinventing her body on stage to the delight of the audience. Although the physical effort nearly breaks her back and the powerful lights burn her eyes, she continues to perfect her dance. But then she meet Isadora Duncan, a prodigy eager for glory, who precipitates the fall of this icon of the early 20th century.
