Two-thousand-and-three (2003)

Gilles Jobin

Premiere 10 September 2003 BFM, Bâtie Festival of Geneva (Switzerland)
Commissionned work for 21 dancers for the Ballet du Grand Théâtre de Genève


TWO-THOUSAND-AND-THREE is a new work for twenty-one bodies in which movement spreads like a disease. Split bodies, swapped torsos and dislocated limbs embody the scene of their inner chaos.

Separations and multiplications, divisions and reproductions shift in a world of dreamlike passions, fantasy and allegory, heaven and hell…
