Five dancers are pinned to the floor. Ten forearms loom up in the black night, composing a calligraphy of constantly changing forms, like luminescent particles. It could be said of Brice Leroux that he is a rigorous aesthete mastering a singular poetry of matter. It could also be said that he combines this staggering ability to suspend the audience outside time with the intuitive curiosity of a scientist passionately observing the laws governing the universe. And it is not purely a matter of chance that the essence of his choreography cuts into the sharp edge of the phenomena of perception. With moving and hypnotic clarity, his inspiration draws directly from the infinite potential hidden in the complex science of the infinitely small, science that examines the very first creation of the tiniest nucleus of matter such as the laws of energy that set it in motion - quantum mechanics. The result is neither dry nor difficult. A dance piece that absorbs the spectator's senses in an indescribable mystery.
