Antony Gormley has designed the set for Noetic, a performance created by choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, also working alongside Fashion designer duo Les Hommes and composer Szymon Bróska.
'Noetic explores man’s instinctive need to structure every detail of our existence and our longing to break free of the rules and discover what lies beyond them. Combining both mechanical and flowing as well as classical movements, the dancers construct, change and deconstruct reality.'
Noetic's musical score has been composed especially for The Göteborg Opera Orchestra.
Antony Gormley and Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui have collaborated on three previous projects; Sutra, Babel and Zero Degrees. His set design for Noetic will give the dancers both bodily extensions and the constructive elements to create a potential architecture for individual and collective action.
The performance runs for 2 hours and 15 minutes and includes one interval
