Swinging Primes is a contemporary dance piece, a musical score of movement and stillness for two dancers based on the series of prime numbers ‘Swinging Primes’.

The piece premiered at the opening of Eric Nehr’s photography exhibition ‘Oscarine’ at La Grande Maison Blanche in Brussels.

 

The creation started in Brussels in 2015, premiering with Daniela Faria, and now being performed by Nathan Jardin. The rehearsals took place at the studios for research and creation, Garcia Lorca, Garage 29, and at La Bellone. Swinging Primes was since taken on by the dance department of the high school Lycee Martin V and turned into a repertory piece for their graduating students in 2017

The music was composed and is played live by Leonard Steyaert. He intricately connects the sounds with the numbers and the choreography’s structure. The video of the performance at GC Heembeek Mutsaard was recorded and post produced by Anna Panier and Tom Torbeyns. Tom Hallet also joined the project, adding the visual concept for lights and stage design.
