10000 gestes

23 dancers perform individual variations of a score made up of hundreds of gestures, without ever repeating a single one – like in a moving hidden object illustration. The highly individualised figures form swarms of collective excess and melancholy to the hazy strains of Mozart’s Requiem – a hypnotic work by Boris Charmatz and an artistic
commentary on socio-political dynamics.
