Currents unfolds in two parts, as an installation and a performance. The installation explores the simplest of forms, a line, turned into a light sculpture. Through repetition, it defines not only rhythm, space and light, but also the movements of dancer Mario Barrantes Espinoza. He meets and confronts the moving sculpture in an effort to reconfigure the relationship between man and machine. On 05 & 06.02, Brakke Grond will host Currents during Beyond the Black Box.
