Ode to Loïe Fuller


Yesterday I've discovered for the first time in an exhibition, this divine dancer.
I fell under the charm of this marvelous and oneiric serpentine dance ...



 Loïe Fuller; (January 15, 1862 – January 1, 1928) was a pioneer of both modern dance and theatrical lighting techniques.

Born Marie Louise Fuller in the Chicago suburb of Fullersburg, now Hinsdale, Illinois,
Fuller began her theatrical career as a professional child actress and later choreographed
and performed dances in burlesque (as a skirt dancer), vaudeville, and circus shows.
An early free dance practitioner, Fuller developed her own natural movement
and improvisation techniques. Fuller combined her choreography with silk costumes
illuminated by multi-coloured lighting of her own design.
