This project is a new version of the work “Xenakis 100,” a dance installation created for a museum space on the occasion of the 100th birth anniversary of architect and composer Iannis Xenakis.
The language of the work is visual-architectural, making use of iron beams, wooden blocks, silicone thread, reflectors, and explores varying degrees of tension/laxity in materials relative to the body’s tonus and location in space. The installation draws references to the architectural works, sketches, musical compositions and life story of Xenakis.
