Fais danser la poussière (Dancing Forever)
Monday, February 11, 7PM
Based on Marie Dô's autobiographical novel, Dancing Forever focuses on Maya, a talented dancer, and her relationship with her unmarried Breton mother as they cope with the complexities of racism in the late 1960s in France. Accepted into the Alvin Ailey School, Maya moves to New York and experiences first-hand identity politics in the US. Faure's camera work lovingly captures Tatiana Seguin's performance as Maya and the dazzling dance sequences choreographed by Dô, as well as inspired improvisations during the rehearsal scenes.
