Xavier Le Roy was a researcher in molecular and cellular biology when he decided, at the age of 27, to dedicate himself to dance. DiverseWorks presents Le Roy’s monumental work Self Unfinished (1998), in which he elevates the deconstruction of the body to a level of poetry. In an empty space and using a minimum of theatrical means, the choreographer-dancer unveils the thousand bodies hidden behind the daily image of the human body. With humor, irony, and extreme rigor Xavier Le Roy invites us to a continuously changing presentation of strangely familiar deformations.
