Tanztheater at the Turrell


The light show at the Turrell Skyspace set the backdrop for what reminded me of Pina Bausch Tanztheater without music. For the most part, the audience sat along the perimeter on the marble benches watching the changing light against the darkening sky. In random fashion, members of the audience became part of the performance as they got up to take photos, looking up at the sky, looking down at the reflecting pool. After returning to their seats, some looked at their phones, some settled in to absorb the slowly-changing colors.

This short clip from the movie Pina reminded me of the Claremont show.
