Les Ondes Gravitationnelles

Free. Advanced booking required


The undisputed pioneer of vertical dance, Fabrice Guillot, has created one of his most futuristic performances for the Progetto Manifattura entitled Les Ondes Gravitationnelles. The aerial choreography of this performance with its quartet, sound recorded in real time and projected images are all merged together as one. Thanks to a crisscross structure of poles, forming a huge sculpture which is suspended in front of the building, the pre-existing architectural space takes on a new, magical appearance.

Dancers Magdalena Bahamondes, Olivia Cubero, Cybille Soulier
