10,000 gestures

10,000 gestures

10,000 gestures is exactly what the title suggests – a continuous flow of 10,000 unique movements, each one performed only once before disappearing forever. It could have been generated by mathematical algorithms, but in this case, it is delivered artisanally, with the bodies of the performers. Contrary to what one would expect, the explosion of movements does not give rise to a feeling of mechanical acceleration; rather, it comes close to stillness. The experience of seeing 10,000 gestures that are never completed or repeated has a hypnotic effect and invites to meditation. An impressive tribute to dance, the most ephemeral of all art forms.
