'the event of a thread'. Ann Hamilton's new work fills the Armory's Drill Hall with a visceral and literal poetry. Set into motion by visitors, a field of swings, a massive white cloth, a flock of homing pigeons, spoken and written texts, and transmissions of weight, sound, and silence weave through this expansive space to create a fabric of experience.

TAC. TAC. by Cie Nuna

© Cie Nuna/YoungSoon Cho Jaquet

Boxes, sticks and casters... Props are present on the stage, one couldn't tell their function. An original mystery proposed, not without malice, in Tac.Tac., a solo by choreographer and dancer YoungSoon Cho Jaquet, from which those inert companions disrupt the boundaries of senses and perception as they are set to move. Here, the dancer becomes a shaman, owner of a secret grammar of items she gives to us through the filter of her emotions.

This piece was born of the encounter of the choreographer YoungSoon Cho Jaquet and visual artist Jonas Marguet, and of the desire to explore a common sensibility bound to hybridization and optical illusion.
