24 dancers, one hour and a torrent of unrepeated movements. 10000 to be precise, all questioning the nature of dance’s relationship to time.

Alongside the ticketed presentation of this major work, Charmatz continues his exploration of dance in the public space of the museum with two new public formats developed especially for Tate. On Saturday afternoon, Charmatz delivers an open ‘lecture-demonstration’ in which he explains the language and composition of his choreography. On Sunday afternoon, a set of solos extracted from the piece unfolds to create an extended, three-hour piece.

As a counterpoint to 10000 Gestures, Emmanuelle Huynh and Charmatz present the duet étrangler le temps (To Strangle Time). It will appear sculpture-like and relatively still among the movement of the public on the Turbine Hall ramp. étrangler le temps and boléro 2 are a tribute to the work of choreographer Odile Duboc. They will appear in an informal, off-stage presentation during opening hours in the Turbine Hall.
