In 10000 gestes, Boris Charmatz envisions a “choreographic forest” made from unique gestures. An antidote to the frantic profusion of movements,  somewhat of a comment on the ephemeral nature of dance.
 

A  dancer and choreographer who has drawn attention in the last decades, Boris Charmatz has made his Musée de la danse in Rennes a time capsule of the day, inviting artists and researchers interrogating the times. Whether he enters a library or the Opéra de Paris with 20 dancers for the 20th century, or out in the street with the projects danse de nuit and Fous de danse, he has made his mark on idiosyncratic choreographic territory. 10000 gestes features a shower of movements, with twenty-five performers on stage, that is “10,000 gestures that will only appear once, and disappear immediately afterward, like an ode to the impermanence of the art of dance. No movement will be duplicated before our eyes, so that a well-organized “chaos” can reveal itself. In his own way, Boris Charmatz pays tribute to the craftsmanship of the performer, who donates “movements doomed to symbolic disappearance”.
