LAST DAYS OF BAM’S “IN-I” STARING JULIET BINOCHE
"I never know what I'm capable of doing before I do it." These words, spoken by Oscar-winning actor Juliette Binoche (Caché, The English Patient, Blue), capture the intrepid spirit—indeed the daring—behind In-I, an intensely visceral dance-theater work conceived, directed, and performed by Binoche and the adventurous British choreographer Akram Khan (Steve Reich @ 70, 2006 Next Wave Festival). Together, these charismatic artists arrive at something entirely new, as an actor dances and a dancer acts.
Incandescent and delicate, Binoche moves with surprising force, always in lockstep with Khan's virtuosity and power. Accompanied by an evocative, mercurial score and performed before a luminous wall designed by British sculptor Anish Kapoor, the couple's exchanges are thrust into relief, revealing the intricacies of a love affair, in all its glory and all its pain.
