Boris Charmatz's 10000 Gestures
In his most ambitious stage work to date, Boris Charmatz amasses a choreographic storm of movements assembled by more than 20 dancers each executing thousands of non-repetitive gestures over the course of an hour. Now coming to the NYU Skirball Center for the Performing Arts, Charmatz's work -- which is set to Mozart's Requiem, a glorious meditation on death -- is a statement on the transient nature of being. The inspiration for 10000 Gestures came to Charmatz while he was staging his piece, Levée des Conflits Extended, at the Museum of Modern Art in 2013, which was a study in permanence and immobility. Charmatz set out to create the opposite effect in 10000 Gestures, as he told The New York Times: "I envision a choreographic forest in which no dancer ever repeats any of the gestures, each of which will be shown only once and will vanish as soon as it has been executed, like an ode to the impermanence of the art of dance."
