BLACK SWAN: Blanca Li appears an as exacting choreographer in a film she directed for Christian Louboutin’s fall collection.
Called “La Répétition,” or “The Rehearsal,” the 101-second-long clip features the Spain-born choreographer with a stylish cast of dancers clad in Louboutin fall styles. In it, they seemingly suffer under Li’s critical eye. One dancer even collapses from exhaustion.
The film, which takes inspiration from the Broadway musical “A Chorus Line,” is to be released on Tuesday.
“Louboutin shoes are not just to look at or to keep still in a nice position. You can go out all night and dance,” Li asserted.
The choreographer and the shoe designer have partnered before, on Li’s futuristic dance production “Robot,” which debuted at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in June 2015.
The clip is accompanied by images that were shot by René Habermacher in Paris for a Christian Louboutin look book also set for a release on Tuesday.
