  • Short Summary

    The Russian ballet dancer Madame Karsavina is seen "at home".

  • Description

    Madame Karsavina, Russian ballet dancer is seen at home and in her garden in England.

    She is seen choosing fabric for her costumes and dancing. "Exercises for suppleness are absolutely essential" We see Karsavina in her garden performing very stylised movements - they are almost like Tai Chi. A cat lies beside her as she stretches. "- and for a quaint but quiet hobby Madame delights in furnishing her doll's house." Nice C/U of Madame Karsavina sitting in the garden playing with her doll's house. Film ends with the dancer and leaving home for the theatre. "But the Coliseum is calling - so "Goodbye" The maid passes her handbag, Madame nods in thanks and leaves the house.

    Was item in Eve's Film Review issue 9.
