Boris Charmatz – Flip Book | The Tanks



Boris Charmatz is a French dancer and choreographer, celebrated for his experimental and radical approach to contemporary dance. For this performance in the Tanks at Tate Modern, Charmatz charts the pioneering avant-garde choreography of Merce Cunningham, as captured in a photobook documenting Cunningham’s long career.

Charmatz invites different groups of dancers — including ex-members of Cunningham’s company — to perform the poses that appear in the photographs, so creating a speeded-up, ‘flip-book’ version of Cunningham’s key works.
