Lara Barsacq

IDA don’t cry me love

Lara Barsacq pays tribute to Ida Rubinstein, the legendary dancer with the Ballets Russes who caused a sensation in Paris at the start of the 20th century with her charisma, beauty and inflammatory presence. Through her provocative and liberating performances, Ida Rubinstein entered the history of dance and feminism.

Lara Barsacq invites two dancers to celebrate and sing in memory of Ida Rubinstein and her glory and absence, serving as a continual source of inspiration. Mixing the historic and the

trivial, the grandiose and the absurd, personal memories and archives, she composes an ode to freedom and to those guiding figures who inspire energy and daring. A hymn to poetry and to dance, a fascinating feminist manifesto.
