Head to Dancehouse for an evening hypnotic movement and sound

French artist Myriam Gourfink brings her tantalisingly slow choreographic stylings to Melbourne for a two night presentation at Dancehouse. Well known in Europe, She's one of only a few modern choreographers whose practice can be called genuinely minimalist, using a precision technique based on Tibetan yoga, in which Gourfink trained for years.

Her routines are intimately connected to electronic soundscapes composed by her partner Kasper Toeplitz – himself a renowned artist. The work's title, 'Breathing Monster', puts the intense, vibrating, breathing presence of the sound against the apparent stillness of the dancer, whose minute gestures emerge only from the technique of deep breathing and from the power of the sound produced by the bass.

"For those who experienced Cindy Van Acker’s 'FRACTIE' in Dance Territories last October," says Dancehouse artistic director Angela Conquet, "this is the next step into an even more radical approach to scarceness on stage."
