La Loie Fuller Folies Bergere ...
Loie Fuller was filmed by Edison, working with light projection and early film.
I danced the historical choreography - with 50 yards of fabric. It took tremendous strength to project the fabric into space at the right time with the right movements, hitting the music and light cues, without the translucent, silk fabric falling or failing.
