Gilles (12)

A sensual, fluid, hypnotic exploration of a “human sculpture”: the bodies of five dancers pass, cross, follow, intertwine with each other. A video of dance, adaptation of choreographer Gilles Jobin’s “The Moebius Strip”.

The Moebius Strip, created at the Théâtre de la Ville in Paris during the spring of 2001 became one of his most emblematic pieces. “On the stage, viewed as a white painting, bodies are thrown like splashes of colors, mixed as tint areas and given rhythm by the shades of the clothes” (Rosita Boisseau). This creation evokes his father’s paintings, Arthur Jobin, which alternate between geometrical rigor and intensive vibration of juxtaposed colors.

Dance film 26 minutes / choreography THE MOEBIUS STRIP recorded in december 2001 at the Arsenic, Lausanne.

Marlon Barrios asked me to post my thoughts on dance and technology in my work:

Here TEXT TO SPEECH (2008), a piece in which each dancer uses a PC with "text to speech" programs for the computers to read texts. A simple use of high end technology but in the context of the piece the manipulation of computer seems  taken out of a normal daily life and does not seem technological. Technicaly we could not have made this piece 15 years ago, and 20 years ago the portable computer was not yet avaialble for maintstream use. And dramaturgicaly neither would have it been possible, 20 years ago a portable computer would have looked like a science fiction piece! I needed the audience to relate to the piece as a contemporary problematic. A laptoop computer in 2008 is an ordinary daily life object.  When I was a kid a mobile phone was only to exists in Star Treck, now when you see an old movie you think "but why he does not use his mobile phone?". So the computer object has moved dramaturgicaly in less than 20 years from a  science fiction status  to a daily life item: We now live in this Blade Runner like world where technology is part of our life as objects, embeded in our life, our should we say that WE are embeded inside  technology.

We used computers in Text To Speech to be able read live "fake" news of war and conflicts. It was very useful in the creation process, very flexible, we could modify our texts ourselves without needing a technician.  We manipulated orignal press agency news about the war in Irak, and changed "Irak" by "Switzerland". With this little "mind" trick", we relocated distant events such as a bomb killing 20 people in a market in Bagdad by a bomb killing twenty poeple in a market in Geneva. Suddenly the "bodycount" became  real, the news became more real and  not anymore a distant lithany of  numbers of death but a reality "virtualy" located in your backyard... A brutal switch  of perpectives in the mond of the spectator. Te synthethic voice of the "text to speech" program, adds to the distanciation. Also, we were able to perform the pece in its original language, in japanase, german, french, english... This piece has been inspired by a story my uncle told me and also has to do with technology  and the impact of it into reality. When he was a young journalist in a news agency in Zurich, he received the telex with the news of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombing at the end of WW2. At this time, only him had the immediate info and the words were creeping out  of the telex machine physicaly into his hands. The strip of paper coming out of the machine was slowly revealing the horror of the distant disaster. It was the power of suggestions of the words and the empathy of the reader, not the technology in itself that was revealing the horror-the same machine was also "vomiting"  "banal" news . But without the technology, this "virtual experience of reality" would not have happenned to him and marked him for life.

QUANTUM (2013) Is a piece made out after my residency at CERN, the huge particle physic laboratory based in the Geneva area who famously revelead the existence of the Higgs bozon on the 4th of July 2012. I was at CERN on that day and the "virtual" emotion of finding something truly invisble was high. It was the technology who made us capable of tinking about this discovery that can not be seen. (see my residency blog). The piece QUANTUM came out after theree months residency inside this super high tech campus, the site of the bigger machine ever built by humans... I had this "creative collission"  with co resident  german visual artist Julius von Bismarck. Julis conceived a "kynetic light instalation" operated and constructed by his regular collaborator german engenier Martin Shied (he operates  the piece on tour). Based on the pendulum principle, the 4 industrial lamps are piloted by a complicated algorythm that send signal to 4 motors that makes possible the syncronisation and variations of the movement of the lamps. It is super flexible and adaptable we can create almost any pendulum movement.

The music has been composed by American composer Caral Scaletti on her powerfull sound design machine KYMA, (she is the maker of the software of the machine and husband Kurt Heibel conceived the hardware-Kyma is one of the most powerfull soudn design computer in the market). She used   real data taken from CERN LHC by a process of "data sonification". Collaborating with phycicist Lili Asquith she managed to use real data to produce amazing music  (listen to phycicist  Lili Asquith about LHC data sonification and datata driven Kyma sound project)


To me, technology is a tool, something that is not to necesarely be seen for itself but necessary only if it   gives more meanig to a piece.  My next project is a 3D dance film, I am very much interested by the volume of the space virtualy created inside our brain by the trick stereo images are playing inside on our heads...

Geneva, 14 May 2012.

Space, time and gravity are under the cultural spotlight at CERN this month with the arrival of Gilles Jobin, the laboratory's first choreographer in residence and winner of the Collide@CERN Geneva prize, which is supported by the Canton and City of Geneva. Jobin is an internationally renowned Swiss choreographer with a company in Geneva. His CERN inspiration partner for his three-month residency at the laboratory will be the multi-media producer and visualisation specialist, João Pequenão, who studied physics at the University of Lisbon.
To mark the occasion, Gilles Jobin et João Pequenão will give a public presentation in CERN’s Globe of Science and Innovation on Wednesday 23 May about movement in dance and particle physics. Doors open at 18:30 with a prompt 19:00 start.
“It will be fascinating to see how Gilles Jobin explores particle physics through dance and movement following creative dialogues with CERN scientists and science,” said CERN Director General Rolf Heuer.
The Collide@CERN Geneva prize is the second strand in the Collide@CERN Artists Residency programme launched by CERN in 2011. Jobin was given the award by a jury for his proposal to explore through dance the relationship between mind and body at the world's largest particle physics laboratory.
“The opportunity to be in contact with what is the largest scientific experiment in the world in my own city is extraordinarily fascinating as well as intellectually challenging,” said Jobin. “Passion is what we share and a choreographer deals with time and space while CERN scientists deal with movement and space at sub atomic levels. Conceptually, for a choreographer to realize that gravity, the major force I am dealing with every day, is the weakest of the four fundamental forces of nature is mind blowing.”
At the 23 May presentation, Jobin and Pequenão will make individual presentations of their work and then discuss the potential of their forthcoming creative collisions at CERN. CERN’s cultural specialist, Ariane Koek will chair the discussion and take questions from the audience.
“Both Gilles and João have cross over connections which is what makes their partnership so exciting,” said Koek. “They are both experts in the visualisation of abstract ideas through movement – Gilles does this through dance, João does this through multimedia representations of the complexity of particle physics.”
During the residency, the public will be able to follow and comment on the experience and interchanges on a blog accessed through the Arts@CERN website featuring their exchanges. During his residency, Jobin will appear at the City of Geneva's Nuit de la Science on 7 and 8 July, and give a final lecture after the end of his residency in October.
Members of the public, including CERN personnel, who wish to attend should register their requests for seats with

Gilles Jobin (CH) is the winner of the first Collide@CERN Geneva residency award. With an international reputation as a choreographer, early works A + B=X (1997) and The Moebius Strip (2000) were hailed as contemporary dance masterpieces. Apart from his own dance productions, which include the recently acclaimed Spider Galaxies, Gilles Jobin has made his company and Studio 44 a pioneering place, offering professional training for dancers and stimulating international exchange by means of various initiatives.

João Pequenão (Portugal) is a specialist in scientific visualization. He studied physics at the University of Lisbon, becoming increasingly interested in the multi-media possibilities and potential of communicating the science of particle physics through imaginative and digital means.

Gilles Jobin is a member and a close collaborator since 2009.

Choreography or ELSE, is an online series on dance-techTV featuring complete performances from international choreographers, dance artist or directors that continue to challenge traditional and contextual notions of choreography, dance and performance. They problematize the performance of movement  and the body experimenting with compositional and aesthetic strategies, dramaturgic approaches, non conventional spaces, appropriating uses of the new technologies, crossing disciplinary boundaries and cultural hybridity.

All pieces are presented with educational purposes and by courtesy of the artists.
