The internationally acclaimed French choreographer and dancer Boris Charmatz is one of the most influential innovators of contemporary dance. Previously invited to Essen by PACT for the Dance Platform in Germany 2018 with his work ›10000 gestures‹, Charmatz opens the dance season at PACT with the German premiere of ›infini‹. For centuries, dancers have been counting to four, six or eight. What happens when these numbers are extended into infinity? In ›infini‹ Charmatz is not only concerned with mathematical infinity: ›infini‹ signifies a departure into unlimited numerical dimensions, into a metaphysical realm beyond the material world.

Five performers create a counting chant, producing an infinite numerical litany. Charmatz stages gestures and movements like landscapes fluctuating between filigree detail and energetic group sequences. Through alternating acceleration and deceleration, the dancers create haunting, concentrated moments.
