SIMPLEXITY la beauté du geste

Thierry De Mey

During the Ars Musica Festival.

Composer, director of dance films, creator of choreographed multimedia installations, Thierry De Mey has followed a unique path over the past 3 decades guided by his fascination for movement. Today, this artist to whom Belgian dance owes so much, has written his first performance: a large-scale work created with IRCAM, the Ensemble intercontemporain, and a group of dancers. Based on research on digital technology, SIMPLEXITY la beauté du geste blends music and dance, the auditory and the visual, in formal structures performers are invited to inhabit.

The theme which nourishes Thierry De Mey's œuvre is found throughout the performance: the quest to find the impossible connections between a structure and its incarnation, between technology and the living, mathematics and nature, the scientific and the poetic. SIMPLEXITY offers a global experience in which music and gesture reconcile a fragment with the whole.
