Ola Maciejewska (FR/NL/PL)
She went all out at all times: Loïe Fuller, the early avantgardist and inventor of the “serpentine dance”. Last year, Stéphanie Di Giusto made an impressive film about her life called La Danseuse. 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.
