inspired by L’Après midi d’un faune,
a 1912 dance performance by Les Ballets Russes.
The legendary Vaslav Nijinsky plays the role of a young faun
who pursues a group of forest nymphs, to no avail.
In the closing scene, he amorously dances with a scarf
that one of the nymphs leaves behind, expressing his unmet desires. At the time, this caused a great controversy. The play’s visceral dancing,
avant-garde music and final act was a turning point in the Parisian world of dance, music, fashion and art.
