Regarded as the first black star, becoming the muse of Cubist artists and intellectuals, Josephine Baker was a creator in her own right, who invented a musical style and stage presentation just as much as she fashioned an exceptional persona. But it is also the conscience of the century and fighter for freedom that Magali Léger and the Ensemble Contraste bring to life with this show in a class of its own.
