21 October–2 December 2016
Scenography by Antony Gormley is part of Icon, a collaboration between Göteborgs Operans Danskompani, composer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and his dance ensemble Eastman.
To specially-composed music, performed live by musicians and singers from Italy and Japan, the dancers interact with the three and a half tonnes of clay in sophisticated, almost ritual patterns.
The collaboration comes after Gormley and Larbi Cherkaoui collaborated on NOETIC in 2014.
During the coming year, Göteborgs Operans Danskompani and Eastman will tour the piece to numerous destinations including Antwerp, Brussels and Paris.
