Brought together by the Dance Centre, the Global Dance Connections Series, and the Artist in Residence program at CERN...
Art and science collide in QUANTUM, an exciting new work by Swiss
choreographer Gilles Jobin inspired by his residency at the largest
particle physics laboratory in the world – CERN in Geneva. Six
outstanding dancers power through intricate, densely textured
choreography to explore the subtle balances of the forces that shape our
world: matter, gravity, time and space. The work is illuminated by
acclaimed German (and fellow CERN resident artist) Julius von Bismarck’s
kinetic installation of suspended industrial lamps which are activated
by the movement of the dancers, and American composer Carla Scaletti’s
electronic score incorporates data from the Large Hadron Collider.
QUANTUM epitomizes the adventurous, searching spirit of both artistic
and scientific inquiry.
