For their second exhibition at Elephant Paname since its opening, Fanny and Laurent Fiat chose to pay homage to the great ballerina Noëlla Pontois

One can follow the unique career of the incredible star Noëlla Pontois from her childhood and her first steps at the ballet school to her greatest performances. The audience is invited to walk through the memories the star especially lent for the exhibition: newspapers’ cuttings, photos by Francette Levieux and Michel Lidvac, commercials, costumes, archives, etc… It is very moving to discover the authentic costumes of her major roles, like Kitri in Don Quichotte, Odile in Swan Lake or even Giselle.

One is even able to penetrate the privacy of the star, getting inside her dressing room, which was reproduced almost exactly as it was at the Opera of Paris.
