Fuller’s dance reimagined

A theremin soundtrack for a new interpretation of Loie Fuller’s butterfly dance on film.

First screened at Latitude Festival, 2011, dancer Louise Colborne presented her own interpretation of Loie Fuller butterfly dance on film.

Dancer at the Folies Bergère in the early twentieth century, Fullerwas a pioneer of multimedia performance. She projected coloured lights and images onto her volumous, silk dress. Sticks inside her sleeves extended her arms, creating an other-worldly augmented human performance.

Struck by the connections between my movements on theremin and those of Fuller, Louise asked me to extemporise a theremin soundtrack to be interwoven with the dance.

Loie Fuller, c1902
