With his inimitable walking style and locked-down body language, Charlie Chaplin seemed to dance on screen.

Following in the extraordinary footsteps of an artist who experienced a rough upbringing before hitting it big in Hollywood, Mario Schröder created a Doppelganger for him, contrasting Charlie, embodied by a dancer, with The Tramp, his fictional, vagrant alter ego. A female dancer slips on his bowler hat and, tenderly, steps into the shoes of his creator, so much so that the two are easily confused. The dancers humorously recreate scenes from Modern Times and The Great Dictator.

With this original tribute to not only a fine filmmaker but also a highly-skilled choreographer, Mario Schröder, director of the Leipzig Ballet, has achieved his first big success in France.
