Day by day program / June, 2011



Les Temps tiraillés

Attendees at Anish Kapoor's installation Leviathan in the Nave of the Grand Palais are invited to an immersive experience created by Myriam Gourfink's choreography and a new electronic version of Georg Friedrich Haas' spectral music.

Via the control of breathing and harmonic concentration, fusion takes place through minute modulations of constant glissandos in the music and the hypnotic slowness of the movements through which the choreographer illustrates the corporal volumes and dance codes. Time pulled by music, time stretched by dance, space unified by Anish Kapoor: a triple aspiration to continual infinity.
