FLY (Dance Day Special) - Sidney Leoni

mon 05/04/2021 > sun 18/04/2021

Sidney Leoni is a choreographer, performer and film director-producer dedicated to immersive theater and cinema, which tests the potential of sensory and imaginary perception among the audience.
His most recent work FLY reveals his own journey, his confrontations with artwork and artists which had a great influence on him: an intimate look at the fanciful world of the artist. In the process, he returns to the Paris of 1912, to Nijinsky and the Imperial Russian Ballet company, and to Freddie Mercury in London in the 90s.

The cinema-performance FLY reminds us of the legendary dancer Vaslav Nijinsky (ca. 1888-1950). Stage and screen create a storyline that wanders between fact, fiction and imaginary stories about Nijinsky’s life and work.
