He revolutionized the world of dance and established himself as one of the essential artists of the 20th century. While some praised his beauty, his genius and his talent, others accused him of being pretentious, impetuous and sold. But who was Serge Lifar, this young Ukrainian born in Kiev in 1905?

Serge Lifar’s power of attraction is phenomenal, he fascinates the public and finds himself at the crossroads of artistic creation, collaborating with Picasso, Chanel and Cocteau. His technical mastery and inventiveness transforms the dusty world of ballet and launched a new neoclassical aesthetic.

Using unpublished archives and extracts from his most beautiful pieces, the principal dancers Charles Jude, Claude Bessy, Attilio Labis, Gilbert Meyer and Cyril Atanassoff tell us about the life and fascinating work of Lifar in tandem with his French biographers, Jean-Pierre Pastori and Florence Poudru, and several Ukrainian specialists.
