Compagnie Gilles Jobin: QUANTUM
8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
677 Davie Street
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 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.
