Light sculpture Chain Reaction in contemporary dance production 'Extremalism'

Light Scultpure Chain Reaction is featured in the international dance production ‘Extremalism’ by Ballet National de Marseille and ICKamsterdam.

The notion and experience of time through the spatiality, light and movement of the Chain Reaction can be experienced in various ‘executions’. Depending on its location and duration of its exposure, the experience can be made specific.
As such, Chain Reaction formed the anchor point for the choreography ‘Extremalism’ by Emio Greco and P.C. Scholten. The ‘sense of time’ of the sculpture was compressed to fit the duration of the dance performance.Time, light and movement of the sculpture merged with choreography, dance and music. This unique and special ‘performance’ of the light sculpture was realized through a close collaboration of Henk Stallinga with the choreographers. In this choreography Chain Reaction performs as if it were one of the dansers, with its own act, its own dance.
