The Dancer

 

Stéphanie Di Giusto

France/Belgium/Czech Republic, 2016

 

Nothing in her background destined Loïe Fuller (the mononymousSoko) from the American Midwest to become a Belle Époque icon, much less a dancer at the Paris Opera. Even at the risk of destroying her back and damaging her eyes from the stage lights, she never falters in the quest to perfect her dance. The Dancer chronicles Fuller’s voyage from her humble origins to her position as celebrated innovator in the decadent world of Belle Époque Paris. Drawn there by the allure of a city seemingly kinder to artists, Fuller initially struggles to find recognition for her avant-garde and very progressive choreography. Her innovation and persistence eventually pay off and she becomes a key figure amongst a generation of artists and performers, paving the way for those who followed. But her meeting with Isadora Duncan (Lily-Rose Depp), a young prodigy hungry for glory, will lead her astray.—Various sources
