Presented through a partnership with Quartiers Danses Festival directed by Rafik Hubert Sabbagh
Internationally celebrated choreographer Angelin Preljocaj's Empty moves is set to the infamous 1977 recording of John Cage's Empty words, when the minimalist composer calmly intoned radically abstracted text to an uncomprehending and increasingly raucous audience. Preljocaj's choreographic response creates an ode to the abstract which exults in pure movement and new expressions of phrasing, as a quartet of superb dancers executes a flow of inexhaustible movement with absolute precision and technical skill. Spare, contemplative and sensual, this absorbing work unfolds as an elegant counterpoint to the turbulent score.
