Boris Charmatz: Flip Book

Dance Free
Boris Charmatz, a dancer, choreographer and figure in the French 'non-dance' movement, creates a new work for Tate Modern's performance space. 'Flip Book' takes as its starting point David Vaughan's book 'Fifty Years', about the late choreographer Merce Cunningham . Charmatz gathers an eclectic group of performers, amateur and professional, and asks them to recreate the images in Vaughan's book, to be performed in sequence, like a speeded-up flip book of Cunningham's choreography. There will be two ticketed performances of the finished work in the evenings, but you can also go and watch rehearsals for free during the day, which could be just as interesting – if not more so.
