The dance of quail. First movement. 7 min. 2010

In the film by Jean Luc Godard’s “Vivre sa vie” Elena Córdoba, choreographer and dancer, heard a small dialog that talked about the nature of chickens and soul. From that text arose the idea of reviving the body of a quail ready to be cooked, and, following Godard, finding in it the soul of the dancer posthumously.
