In 2020, Frédéric Liver tries to come to grips with the Boléro, as choreographed by Maurice Béjart. Attracted by the performance of Duska Sifnios and never having danced before in his life, Liver’s daily life is filled by this new quest. It’s been months since I’ve been working on learning Bolero, choreography by Maurice Béjart. This learning process marks the pace of my everyday life and takes up my living space. It is an ongoing and solitary process. This routine has now become a challenge for intimate research in the writing of an artist’s film: The 4000 Blows.
