About this show

In his most ambitious stage work to date, Boris Charmatz amasses a choreographic storm of movements assembled by more than 20 dancers, each executing thousands of actions over an hour. Each gesture is unique, not to be repeated, and evaporates as soon as it is completed. Alluding to the ephemeral nature of dance, Charmatz's work — which is set to Mozart's Requiem, a glorious meditation on death — is a statement on the transient nature of being. The inspiration for 10000 Gestures came to Charmatz while he was staging his piece Levée des Conflits Extended, a study in permanence and immobility, at the Museum of Modern Art in 2013.
