She is one of those artists who dig deep and lasting furrows, who change lives. For more than 40 years, Maguy Marin has established herself as a major choreographer on the world stage. Daughter of Spanish immigrants, her work is a joyful and furious punch in the face of barbarism. Her career and her political stances call for audacity, courage and combat.

In 1981, his flagship show, May B, shook everything we thought about dance. A deflagration whose echo has not finished resounding.

The journey of the choreographer Maguy Marin, a vast movement of bodies and hearts, an adventure of our time, immortalized and transmitted in turn by the cinema image.
