Jen DeNike, Scrying, 24 April 2010, 7.30 p.m./8.30p.m., ballet, NUMBER THREE: HERE AND NOW, JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION, Duesseldorf

Following the world premiere at MoMA in January 2010, JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION invites you to the European debut of “Scrying“, a non-narrative performance ballet conceived and directed by New York-based artist Jen DeNike and choreographed by Melissa Barak. Inspired by George Balanchine's architectural forms and structural movements, “Scrying“ emphasizes repetitive patterns and gestures that translate the iconic ballerina image, merging contemporary art and classical ballet. "Scrying" is the act of divination or obtaining spiritual visions by peering into water, a mirror, or another reflective surface; the ballerinas engage in a scrying ritual of their own, transforming an architectural space into one of ethereal vision. Additionally, DeNike will present her latest video installation “Another circle“, a continuation of her investigation of a perfect and iconic form.
