DANCE CONCERT – takes the form of a dance concert – a musical performance where dance makes music. Following the invention of Russian physicist Léon Theremin (1896-1993), the idea was to appropriate from operational parameters of terpsitone – an analogue space-played instrument that uses ether waves, electromagnetic fields, and the electrical conduction of the human body. Terpsitone is played through a virtual field. DANCE CONCERT is build from a concern with human beings’ relationship with their environment. 3 – 6 October DANCE CONCERT / Centre Pompidou in the frame of Festival d’Automne / FR
