Summary His story is one of the most famous of the 20th century. As a dancer, he was a beacon of modernism, an icon of androgynous sensuality, and a performer with spectacular athletic prowess. As a choreographer, his experiments with movement – often harsh, primitive and contextualised within a nostalgia for Russia's pagan past – ended with a deconstruction of ballet as an art form, severed from its links to classical technique in favour of a movement seen as revolutionary.
