Constantin Brâncuși’s sculptures capture the suggestion of lightness, clarity and transparency in solid matter. His work explores the tension between the concrete and the abstract, between horizontal inertia and vertical movement. Basing herself on one and the same intuition, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker created a choreographic object in which Brâncuși’s shapes resonate. A continuous play between the materiality of the body and the pursuit of an ethereal quality grants the movement the translucent light and weightlessness so characteristic of Brâncuși’s art, modern and yet imbued with a centuries-old craftsmanship.
