Discover Ola Maciejewska’s reimagination of LoïeFuller’s Serpentine Dances, which enthralled audiences in the 19th century. Mimicking the ebb and flow of water and fire with the help of long reems of silk attached to bamboo poles, Fuller was a force of innovation in theatre and dance. Maciejewska’s modern take of Fuller’s iconic choreography draws on another creature, the silkworm, the Bombyx Mori.
