In the quasi-darkness of an ephemeral club, five bodies vibrate, in a trance, on hypnotic electronic loops in constant evolution. Untitled (Holding Horizon) is inspired by the box step, a movement used in several popular dances, to create a subtle and enchanting choreography. Synchronized movements coexist with moments of sliding and letting go, creating a striking dynamic: between powerful community and minimalist intimacy. The artist, co-founder and member of the feminist collective and queer Kem, winner of the prestigious Frieze Artist Award 2018, offers here a work of rare and radical beauty, exploring community, subjectivity, queer embodiment and desire.

Ticketing on site, no prior reservation possible. This performance is based on long-term experience.
