The ultimate wonder of the world

Each era has its wonders of the world, the idea of an impossibility that is nevertheless constructed, bigger and more impressive that anything the world has known. These architectural and artistic tours de force mark the victory of man over his physical limits and the laws of nature. But isn’t the human body that has devised and made these imposing wonders even more wondrous? Isn’t it more mysterious and more beautiful than the giants we are surrounding ourselves by? How does the body behave to the gigantic architectures of our environment and how would they change when we start to think from the body again?

Once again, the relationship between dance, construction and architecture is at the heart of Radoaun Mriziga's work. In a precise and refined choreography, in this piece Radouan Mriziga confronts the beauty of the moving body with the geometric power of architecture and sculpture.

7 heads off on a quest for the world’s ultimate miracle: the human body.
