WHAT: Performance by Myriam Gourfink and Kasper Toeplitz
From one of Europe's leading choreographers Myriam Gourfink and acclaimed Polish-French composer Kasper Toeplitz comes Breathing Monster, a synthesis of hypnotic sound and uncanny physical movement. A woman gently glides through a long, narrow, invisible maze creating a series of micro-movements in extreme slow motion. As her body propels forward with the stillness of time itself, it gathers incredible momentum, and her gestures become a gravity-defying feat. With prodigious precision, her bodily contortions alter the surrounding musical landscape, breathing new meaning into everything that we see, hear and feel. Blending live music, motion-sensing technology and extreme physicality, Gourfink and Toeplitz design a suspenseful journey through the void, where a Breathing Monster emerges in a wonderfully original narrative about abstraction, time and space.
