Xavier LeRoy: Self-Unfinished
“Rigorously simple and wildly imaginative…an invigorating theatrical experience.” - New York Times
Considered an iconoclast in the dance world, this outstanding French choreographer draws on diverse influences from the worlds of science, performance art, and contemporary dance. Self-Unfinished presents Le roy alone on stage as he morphs between human and machine, slowly contorting his body into a variety of surprising poses. the hour-long piece, performed
in silence, suggests a world of multiple possibilities and reveals LeRoy’s ongoing interest in robotics.
