The origin of the idea came from Ida Rubinstein, the legendary dancer with the Ballets russes and muse of Sergei Diaghilev who caused a sensation in Paris at the start of the 20th century with her charisma, beauty and inflammatory presence. In Oscar Wilde’s Salomé, in which she made
her name, the dancer shed her costume and stripped naked, resulting
in an instant triumph and immediate fame. Through this provocative
and liberating act, Ida Rubinstein entered into the history of dance, performance and feminism. One century on, Lara Barsacq is celebrating and singing in memory of Ida Rubinstein and her glory and absence, serving as a continual source of inspiration. Her way of combining the historic and the trivial, the grandiose and the absurd, personal memories and archives, allows the choreographer to compose an ode to freedom and to those guiding figures who inspire energy and daring. A hymn to poetry and to dance as an invention of the self.
