L'APRES-MIDI D'UN FAUNE

L'Après-midi d'un faune was created on May 29th 1912 at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, and passed on to Loïc Touzé by the members of the Albrecht Knust Quatuor.
L'Après-midi d'un faune by Vaslav Nijinski is considered as a major work in the History of dance.  Though stemming from a classical frame of production - the Russian ballet - this piece inaugurates modernity in dance.  The work of Nijinski also allows for a transversal approach to a teeming artistic context : the poem of the same name by Stéphane Mallarmé, the music by Claude Debussy, the sets and costumes of Léon Bakst, the collotypes of Adolf de Meyer.
