“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.

This performance contains nudity.

Post-performance discussion: Learn more about the artist’s research and a new piece, Anthropomorphic, that he’s developing with MIT scientists and researchers.

Presented in partnership with MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology

Funded in part by FUSED: French U.S. Exchange in Dance, a program of the National Dance Project/New England Foundation for the Arts and the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in New York.
