The Untitled Still Life Collection
Choreograaf Trajal Harrell en beeldhouwster Sarah Sze experimenteren samen, hij met bewegingen, zij met het gebruik van materialen. Die spanning tussen performers, materiaal en ruimte is de essentie van The Untitled Still Life Collection. Het beeld is geen ‘decor’ voor de dans, maar het sculpturale en het choreografische grijpen op elkaar in en veranderen elkaar, wat nieuwe, onvermoede mogelijkheden creëert.
