Apparently its not enough that Juliette Binoche is gorgeous,
Oscar-winning and a spokesmodel for Lancôme. It turns out she can dance
too. And not that showy salsa kind you see on reality TV but really
Her stage debut takes place in a show she developed (and co-stars) with
British choreographer Akram Khan. In-I uses contemporary
movements to tell the story of a tumultuous relationship and the
chemistry between them is palpable.
And if thats not enough Ms. Binoche for one month, the Cinémathèque
québécoise is presenting a retrospective of her films and
an exhibit of her handwritten poetry and pen-and-ink portraits.
What next? A fashion line? Dont rule it out.
