A jaded dance diva processes up the red carpet. Craving the attention she deserves, she performs a magnificent reconstruction from 1927 of the little known work Largo. Since nobody gives a fig she blows a dance raspberry and performs an impromptu rendition of Ranki Panki circa 2007. Diva is where fact and fiction collide, archive and reportage rupture.
