Body cinema: Documentary about Sylvie Guillem

April 18, 2011

I simply can’t believe I’ve found this film! ‘Evidentia (evidence) – 1 film (4) conceived by Sylvie Guillem’ is an art documentary about my favorite dance hacker – Sylvie Guillem.

A classical ballet dancer with internationally successful career  who switched off to contemporary dance by blowing the stage off with her elasticity… I already blogged about issues regarding retired ballet dancers about two yearz ago (52 Percent) with a special accent on Guillem as a role model. Also, she’s been mentioned in my interview with Dr. Beatriz Calvo-Merino as her favorite dancer.
