Dance 774 - 25 February 2017

10:46 a.m, rue des Saules Paris 18th. Dancing in front of le Lapin Agile. This cabaret of Montmartre, builder in 1795 and bought by Aristide Briuant in 1913, has been one of the special places of the artistic and intellectual bohemian, of the beginning of the twentieth century (Toulouse-Lautrec, Georges Courteline, Paul Verlaine, Auguste Renoir, Pablo Picasso, Maurice Utrillo, André Derain, Georges Braque, Amadeo Modigliani, Guillaume Apollinaire, Max Jacob, Charles Dullin, Blaise Cendrars… ). A man passing by says : « That’s what girls are about, Benjamin… ». What did he mean ? That girls are beings dancing by their own, in silence, in the morning light ? or that girls define themselves by coming close and then moving away ? That they walk down the streets interacting with men ? or wether that you can recognize a girl by the fact she’s wearing a hat ? Quite a mystery… 🙂
