Gaia Weiss Interview
Q: When did you first become passionate about dance?
Gaia Weiss: I started dancing at the age of four. I dreamed of becoming a professional ballerina but unfortunately when the time came to audition for the big schools I was told I didn’t have the right body for it, and that I could never dream of becoming a prima ballerina. I stopped at 15-years-old and decided to continue performing, but this time as an actor.
Q: What do you love most about ballet, both as a spectator and as a trained dancer?
Gaia Weiss: To me, the ultimate beauty of ballet is the grace that emanates from a discipline that requires so much pain and suffering. The most talented dancers make it seem absolutely effortless, but so much emotion comes out of their performances. I experience a sense of freedom when I dance. Like other forms of art, it’s very cathartic.
Q: Was there a famous ballerina you aspired to be like when you were growing up?
Gaia Weiss: I’ve always really admired Sylvie Guillem. Growing up I would watch the film Center Stage sometimes 15 times a day – I would learn the choreographies by heart.
Q: How has your experience as a ballerina influenced you as actor?
Gaia Weiss: Theatre and ballet are both platforms through which you can really express yourself. All my years of ballet taught me the discipline you should have in your life as a performer. In ballet, if I didn’t stretch every morning my body wouldn’t be able to follow. Actors also use their bodies to express emotions on screen or on stage to embody a character, so my experience as a ballerina definitely helps. It’s easy to get lazy as an actor so I’m glad that previous experience made me a rigorous person.
Q: Tell us about the idea behind Statues’s choreography?
Gaia Weiss: This video isn’t just music and dance put together to look pretty. It has a real storyline that we thought about together at the beginning of the process. When we submitted the idea to our wonderful choreographer Christopher Marney of this dreamlike world where a sort of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ character would encounter statues coming alive, he came up with loads of ideas.
Q: Is classical music, like Fabio’s, a passion of yours?
Gaia Weiss: I love music and couldn’t live without it. Not just classical, I love jazz and voices from the ’50s like Ella Fitzgerald and Dinah Washington. My biggest regret is not learning to play any instruments.
Q: What did growing up in France teach you about culture and the finer things in life?
Gaia Weiss: Like other European countries France has a beautiful, long history and a very rich culture. I feel extremely privileged to have been raised in Europe and to have been able to travel and discover other countries and cultures from a very young age. It’s so easy and quick to go from one country to another. I’m very grateful to my parents, who have encouraged me to be curious and appreciate beautiful things.
Q: As a former model and a Fashion Week regular, how important is fashion to you?
Gaia Weiss: To be perfectly honest I find fashion nowadays to be utterly ridiculous most of the time. I will always prefer the classics. My everyday outfit is a nice pair of jeans in black or dark denim, an old band t shirt, a dark cashmere sweater when it gets cold, and a tweed or black tailored jacket. I’m a strong believer in ‘less is more’.
