Marie-Agnès Gillot - The Bold and the Beautiful
ph. Lisa Roze for Dance Magazine
"Fearless intensity and determination are as elemental to her daily regime as her morning coffee (and, if truth be told, her daily cigarettes—a habit she has vowed to quit). This born dancer attacks life with fervor, transforming what she calls her god-given ‘monkey arms’ and ‘grasshopper legs’ into grace like a ‘chameleon.’ Dancing takes her to a spiritual level (‘I dance for God, like Nijinsky’), levitating her 5’ 7" body above her pointe shoes in any configuration. ‘When I am onstage,’ she says, ‘an aura transports me towards something universal.’"
