PRUE LANG - STELLAR PROJECT
18 March 2017 - 21 March 2017
Following Lang's previous works, Timeproject (2013) and Spaceproject (2015), Stellar Project continues the exploration of space and time via the experience of the human body, this time expanding into unquantifiable space and unquantifiable time. Creating a unique choreographic language, Stellar Project investigates the dual notions of COSMOS and CHAOS and the way that our human bodies imagine, manifest and transform these understandings of the universe.
