21:00 (1h) / Thematic WOMEN'S STORIES

As the great niece of Léon Bakst – famous painter, decorator and costume designer of the Ballets Russes -, Lara Barsacq spent her childhood immersed in a revolutionary and prolific work. She is deeply marked by the reproductions of the artist including those representing Ida Rubinstein, the muse, fascinating and exotic dancer. In Lost in Ballets Russes, Lara draws from her memory both the paintings of the great-uncle and some artifacts of the 1970s, to create an autobiographical piece as a tribute to her father, envisioning her dance as a ritual that transcends time.


Lara Barsacq is a choreographer, dancer and actress. She likes to mix the tracks between archives, fictions, incarnation and documentary. Starting from the story, autobiographical rituals and the material of the real she tries to imagine dances, metaphors and to switch into incarnation.
