Boris Charmatz | Terrain
Imagine about twenty dancers frantically dancing on stage, each one speaking his own body language. Within an hour no movement shall be repeated twice. Dizzying, isn’t it? A previously unseen choreographic experience by Boris Charmatz.
Boris Charmatz enjoys being a surprise. Like Georges Perec, he turns constraint into creative inspiration. In this show acclaimed since 2017, the former director of the Musée de la danse glorifies the ephemeral nature of his art. No two similar movements, no pose inspired by another dancer. When the dancers move all together a meticulously prepared chaos happens on Mozart’s Requiem. The result is astonishing, the show is an ode to “ the impermanence of dance” and the beauty of it.
