Le mollet de la danseuse

This film ponders such questions as the body, dance and the traces it leaves behind, both inside and out. "l danced professionally for ten years," Marie-Pascale Lescot recounts, "then stopped completely, with no pparent regrets. But years later, âs my son took his first steps, certain questions arose: Where does dance come from? What traces does it leave inside? What makes us dance? Spiderman, French folk dance, my father, Fred Astaire, Swatch watches, and a pair of chubby calves provided some clues.. . ln a moving and slightly burlesque way, Feet on the Ground embraces dance as a gesture that transcends the boundêries of space and time." From the Hollywood musicals of Vincente Minelll to Merce Cunningham, from baroque dance to boogie, this Tilm is composed in the manner of a choreography, with connecting threads, different layers, developments, pauses and recurrent themes. ln the process, it goes beyond dance to explode myths, stereotypes and archetypes.

Lescot, Marie-Pascale

Marie-Pascale Lescot is French, born in 1959. After completing a Bachelor's Degree in French, she devoted herself to dance and trained with visiting professors from the Merce Cunningham Dance Company and choreographers Susan Buirge, Twyla Tharp, Lucinda Childs and Viola Farber. Parallel to her forays into contemporary choreography, she worked with baroque dance historian Francine Lancelot.

In 1986, she was awarded a Foreign Affairs grant to study with Merce Cunningham in New York City where she also commenced her studies of journalism. Upon her return to France, she quit dance and joined television station CANAL+ where she worked as a publicist in cinema and international relations, later shifting to free-lance positions as a writer and cinema editor. Since 2002, she has developed documentary projects for production companies and works now as a writer, a journalist, a translator and a writing workshop trainer. Completed in 2009, « Feet on the Ground" is her first film as a director.
