Not Vital

  • 100 MOVEMENTS, Performance de Barbara Glazar
    February 25, 2017 - February 25, 2017
    Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac Paris Pantin
    69 avenue du Général Leclerc
    93500 PANTIN

    Barbara Glazar’s solo performance piece presents one hundred variations of movement in space and time. Within structured patterns of direction, weight, speed and flow, each movement section marks a specific quality. One hundred sequences brought together reveal the expression and being of the body in relation to it's inner impulses and outer surroundings. 
    The work directly relates to Not Vital exhibition's POLES as it was inspired by the environment and the monumental sculptural works that Not Vital has created. '100 Movements' develops a sculptural approach to the body and lies at the intersection between performing and visual arts.
    Duration: c. 30 min
