Here are Candice’s picks for this week
1. Afternoon of a Faun, a new film by Nancy Buirski. This incandescent film takes on the tragic mythology of Tanaquil Le Clercq, the famous muse of both Balanchine and Robbins, who contracted polio on tour and found herself in an iron lung. Her spirit resounds through interviews, love letters, and amazing archival footage.
