'Quantum' is the result of an artistic residency at the main laboratory for particle physics in the world: CERN in Geneva. There Swiss choreographer Gilles Jobin discovered that we are just stardust floating in space, and gravity is the weakest force in the universe – a real surprise for a contemporary dancer whose work focuses so often on contact with the earth. It was also where he met an emerging figure in the visual arts, German artist Julius von Bismarck. The result of this artistic collision was 'Quantum', a highly sophisticated piece, an ode to particle physics for six dancers. The original music is by American Carla Scaletti and incorporates real data from the particle accelerator.
