À bras-le-corps at Tate Modern

abraslecorps

 

Boris Charmatz first choreographed and performed this work with Dimitri Chamblas in 1993. They will be performing in May at Tate Modern. Rows of seats create a closed space, delimitating the movements of the two dancers and abolishing the distance between the audience and them.
