The Fluxum Foundation is thrilled to see Patrick Bensard, director of the Cinémathèque de la Danse, present his film, “Le Mystère Babilée.” The film retraces the incredible journey of Jean Babilée, an artist forever known as the “enfant terrible” of dance. The film is composed of interviews with the many people who followed the artist along his life’s path: Christian Lacroix, Jean-Paul Goude, Yvette Chauvirée, and Maurice Béjart, and includes various dance pieces.
