Synopsis

FAUN: TANAQUIL LE CLERCQ, 2013, Kino Lorber, 91 min. Dir. Nancy Buirski. Dance student Tanaquil Le Clercq was in her teens when her lithe physique and expressive movement caught the eye of School of American Ballet founder George Balanchine. Le Clercq became a muse to Balanchine as well as to fellow choreographer Jerome Robbins, but in 1956, at the peak of her career, she was stricken with polio and never danced again. Through archival footage and interviews, this beautiful documentary captures the artistry and vibrant personality of one of the seminal figures of 20th-century ballet. Discussion following with director Nancy Buirski.
