The dancing bodies of the different performers are frozen in sublime compositions

October 13 - October 15, 2022 | 7:30pm


US Premiere of Gisele Vienne’s performance “Crowd” at BAM Howard Gilman Opera House

Gisèle Vienne stops time in this hypnotic work that’s captivated audiences from Tokyo to Sao Paulo. the acclaimed French choreographer transports us to a rave, conjuring up a cinematic fever dream, a sacred ritual, and a night spent losing oneself in the crowd. The air throbs with pulsing beats from the radical EDM artists of 90s Detroit. Time ebbs and flows, capturing a moment of explosive synchronicity or slowing down to illuminate the tiniest movements, as 15 individual stories emerge and are subsumed by the group.
