Let's Get Physical in an Artsy, Feministy Kinda Way


We're not all cat videos and vintage sitcoms over here at BUST--we appreciate the classier things in life as well (said while holding a cup of tea and straining to push our pinkies outward). Modern-dance lovers will be thrilled by Co(te)lette, an award-winning, emotionally charged dance film all about the feminine experience. Mike Figgis (Leaving Las Vegas) adapted choreographer Ann Van den Broek's work for the movie, which was recently released on iTunes. The film shows women who "grapple with the meaning and physical translation of beauty and perishability, rawness and fragility. The dancers are slaves of their own desires while trying to get in control of them." You can read a rave review here and check out this preview:
