Gilles Jobin premiered QUANTUM, a new piece for six dancers inspired by his Collide@CERN-Geneva residency at CERN in the CMS Experiment building from September 23rd to 29th as part of the program of Théatre Forum Meyrin.
This piece involves collaborative work with German artist Julius von Bismarck, Ars Electronica Prize Collide@CERN 2012 and also former resident in that institution. Julius von Bismarck will indeed adapt his lumino-kinetic installation Versuch Unter Kreisen for the needs of this creation. Thanks to this collaboration, QUANTUM is supported by Fondation d’entreprise Hermès in the frame of their New Settings programme for the performing arts.
The original music has been composed by Carla Scaletti and will incorporate real data from the LHC. The costumes have been created by Belgian fashion designer and visual artist Jean-Paul Lespagnard.
