Trivia:

He studied dance in London and Paris, and went on to become a leading avant-garde choreographer in the 1950s. His dances have a sensual style which was not well-received in traditional Paris circles, prompting him to move to Brussels. There, his version of Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring" was staged to much acclaim in 1959. See more »
