There was nothing in her background to prepare LoAe to become the toast of the Folies BergAres in Paris and stages across the world. Then she created the 'Serpentine Dance'... 1887. After the death of her
gold prospector father, 25-year-old Marie-Louise leaves her life in the American West to join her mother in New York and pursue her heart's dream - becoming an actress. One night on stage, becoming tangled
in her long dress, she avoids falling by spinning the fabric in a graceful, magical gesture: the 'Serpentine Dance' is born. The audience - shocked, then overwhelmed - calls out for more. Marie-Louise has become
LoAe Fuller. She embarks on a new, hectic life, leaving New York, where imitators try to steal her radical innovations, for Paris. At the Folies BergAres, she dazzles the capital, and illustrious admirers fall at her
feet. Toulouse Lautrec, the LumiAre Brothers, Rodin... the Electric Fairy becomes an icon, the blazing symbol of a generation. But fame isn't all.
