This subtle, indicative out-of-range area, this indescribable element, this chance thing that pierces through and awakens something inside, a sensitive zone, and touches, pricks, and brings it to life.
This new creation is inspired by a quote: “a dancer in motion produces the same curves and straight lines that a painter or sculptor inscribes in immobile matter […] art is always an orchestration of presences, in time and space”. (František Kupka, 1923). Yuval Pick examines dance as a form of measurement in its relationship to architectural space. The infinite possible combinations of bodily spatialities and choreographic trajectories can all be seen as spatial entry points to the choreographer’s universe. Yuval Pick seeks not only to push the body to its limits, but also to create different spatialities, depending on the breadth of gestures and the form of movements; spatialities that progress from curves and lines to polyhedra, allowing the construction of a space that corresponds to a work.
Yuval Pick was originally inspired by the work of painter Cécile Bart, whose scenographic art features a variety of heterogeneous pictographic forms created by the superimposition of translucent membranes to produce a weightless chromatic mosaic.
