We are looking forward to meeting SoKo, the French singer/songwriter/video artist, in her film performance playing modern-dance pioneer Loie Fuller, in La Danseuse (The Dancer). The movie opens tomorrow, Friday, at Laemmle Theatres.
Fuller (1862 – 1928), the great modern-dance pioneer, is now considered, in retrospect, to have been a prescient multi-media artist for her interplay of costume, lighting effects, color, and motion.
A new film about Fuller, “La Danseuse,” was choreographed by Fuller expert Jody Sperling, who coached SoKo to perform all dance sequences herself, sans body double.
La Danseuse | Laemmle Ahryha Theatre | interview and q/a with SoKo to follow 4:30 pm Sat Dec 9 screening by arts·meme’s Debra Levine
