Gilles Jobin and Julius von Bismarck
Developed by Swiss choreographer Gilles Jobin and German visual artist Julius von Bismarck while in residence at CERN, the world’s largest particle physics lab, QUANTUM takes the quark as muse, fusing choreography and installation art into an ode to subatomic randomness. Six dancers vibrate, scatter, and whirl beneath a gyrating quartet of industrial lamps, programmed to respond to the slightest movement, while Carla Scaletti’s soundscape, derived from particle collision data, provides the sonic ether.
