  • Une Danseuse en Apesanteur

Abstract:

  • In September 1991, for the first time ever, the choreographer and dancer performed a parabolical flight in weightlessness above French soil. Since then, she has pursued her research at the Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales in an attempt to develop a training program using dance techniques adapted for astronauts. Other flights during which the artist invited dancers and non-dancers have followed. The object of this film is to show her goals: take art, dance in particular, into the realm of technology and give it back its essential, albeit unexpected role.
