KALDOR PUBLIC ART PROJECTS & CARRIAGEWORKS PRESENT
XAVIER LE ROY
This seminal solo work was first performed in 1998 and presents the choreographer’s early experiments with the ‘performer’s body’ and its relationship to the spectator. Le Roy utilises the traditional constraints of a theatre environment - together the two works offer complementary perspectives of his renowned practice.
'A gripping mental space. Head over heels, the dancer’s body is transformed in real time into a series of hallucinogenic, morphing aberrations…based on unwritten laws and a disquieting, inhuman rhythm. Xavier Le Roy taps into a new field where scientific and social data is transferred into imaginary representations of the body.' - Curator and art critic François Piron
Self Unfinished is free to the public. Please reserve your seat by selecting which performance you would like to attend above.
Alongside Self Unfinished, Xavier Le Roy will present a groundbreaking new work Temporary Title, 2015, and for the first time, the public will be invited to experience the creative development of a Kaldor Public Art Project through a series of open rehearsals.
