The Dance Centre presents Global Dance Connections: QUANTUM by Compagnie Gilles Jobin


The Global Dance Connections series features boundary-busting contemporary dance created by Canadian and international artists.


Compagnie Gilles Jobin (Switzerland)
Thursday-Saturday October 16-18, 8pm
Post-show artist talkback October 17
Duration: 50 minutes

Art and science collide in QUANTUM, the result of Gilles Jobin's artistic residency at the largest particle physics laboratory in the world - CERN in Geneva, where he worked with scientists to investigate principles of matter, gravity, time and space in relation to the body. Six dancers power through densely textured, sculptural choreography, to evoke the subtle balance of forces that shape our world. Illuminated by Julius von Bismarck's light-activated kinetic installation built from industrial lamps, and accompanied by an electronic score by Carla Scaletti which incorporates data from the Large Hadron Collider, QUANTUM epitomizes the adventurous, searching spirit of artistic and scientific inquiry.
