  • Description

    A NEW DANCE FROM FRANCE -- LA BOSTELLA. HERE'S HOW THE RECORDING COMPANY (BEL AIR) DESCRIBED IT TO OUR PARIS CAMERAMAN: IT'S THE ADVENTURE OF A NIGHT OF MOMENTS OF JOY OR SUPREME BOREDOM. IT'S ALSO AN EXORCISM, FOR HERE IT'S A QUESTION OF DELIVERING ONESELF OF ONE'S DEMONS, THE IDEA BEHIND ALL DANCES.

    STANDING BACK A PACE FROM HARM'S WAY, OUR CAMERAMAN FILMED WHAT IS DESCRIBED AT THE FIRST MOVEMENT -- JOY. THE DANCERS, HUDDLED TOGETHER IN A NIGHT CLUB, HAVE TO "LEAP, WITH A MEASURED STEP AND BEAT THEIR HANDS OVER THEIR HEADS."
    NEXT, THE SECOND MOVEMENT, ENTITLED DISTRESS, WHERE DANCERS "GO DOWN ON ONE KNEE, GRIP THEIR HEADS IN THEIR HANDS, AND LAMENT IN LOUD VOICES ON THEIR PRIVATE TROUBLES."
    SUCH AS, THE RECORDING COMPANY SAY, I HAVEN'T HAD A RISE FOR 12 MONTHS, OR WHY DOESN'T THAT PRETTY BLONDE OVER THERE NEVER SMILE 'PON ME?
    THE TWO MOVEMENTS ARE DONE TWICE. LA BOSTELLA (ON RECORD NUMBER 111156) ENDS WITH A SONG OF "OPTIMISM REFOUND". BUT NOT FOR ALL. ONE GIRL WAS CARRIED OUTSIDE ON A STRETCHER.
