"Espaece" by Cie 111- Aurélien Bory at BAM

Brooklyn Academy of Music  presents Espaece, a new work by Aurélien Bory and Compagnie 111 on June 20 – 22  at 7.30 p.m. at Peter Jay Sharp Building, BAM Howard Gilman Opera House

An enormous moveable wall splits and folds like a book. Five performers—three dancers, a soprano (Claire Lefilliâtre), and an acrobat—navigate this imposing monolith to create a shapeshifting tableau. Aurélien Bory’s intrepid work of physical theater is inspired by the life and work of writer-trickster Georges Perec, best known for his wordplay and droll wit. Using Perec’s Species of Spaces as a jumping-off point and diving into a physical riddle of arrivals and departures, presence and absence, Espæce stretches the void of the stage and destabilizes our expectations to moody and mischievous effect.

RUN TIME: 1hr 10min
