I’m a 60 something (64 to be exact) Queenslander living the dream with my writing, riding and cooking - I do the housework too but that's not part of my dream.
Dance is the hidden language of the soul Martha Graham
Here is a fabulous night out just for the ladies. The 2017 French Film Festival is holding an exclusive Ladies' Night Out. At a special screening of Stéphanie Di Giusto's spectacular screen biography, The Dancer, the Festival organisers have arranged an absolutely glamourous Ladies' Party where you and your girl friends can enjoy fine French catering and sparkling wine before you enter the dazzling world of dance in 19th century Paris.
Become inspired by this story based on the actual events surrounding two rival pioneers of modern dance and theatrical performance in late 19th-century Paris.
See how Loïe Fuller (Soko), born in the American Midwest, became the toast of the Belle Époque cabarets and also performed at the Paris Opera. It was with her avant-garde Serpentine dance she became the radiating symbol of her generation. Although the physical effort required to perform the dance risked destroying her back, she never wavered in her quest for perfection. It was not until Loïe's met Isadora Duncan (Depp) the beautiful new dance sensation that Loie felt her stature, confidence and sanity were threatened.
The film is in English and French with English subtitles.
An evening not to be missed so grab your girlfriends and dance your way to the theatre. Enter the glamorous world of dance in 19th century Paris and savour fine French catering and a glass of sparkling wine as you enjoy the sophisticated and grand, Ladies' Night Out.
