Between eclectism and accessibility, this series traces the outline of an original history of dance in the 20th century, striving to show how it is rooted in society. A rapid, dazzling 3-part panorama centred on nudity, atypical bodies and feet. Then 3 documentaries explore the major figures of group dance, duet and solo. Examining these figures takes us to the very heart of the practice of dance - the multiple forms of dance – reflecting on their techniques, sensuality, discipline, body language, physical characteristics, reasoning and lineage. The collection follows the creative process of solo, duet and group choreography, and in doing so, sheds light on the elements that have forged their history.
