Chloé Moglia

Chloé Moglia hovers six metres in the air over the heads of her audience, her calm movements appear to freeze time and shift her body into another dimension. As an artist of silence and magical slowness, she transforms the abyss beneath her into a section of infinity.

A female read acrobat is hanging from a concave scaffold. An audience is sitting below her.

Chloé Moglia: Horizon. The Sun Machine Is Coming Down

The French choreographer and acrobat Chloé Moglia climbs, attached to a liana, a spiral-shaped iron structure. Her solo performance “Horizon” takes place at a height of six metres. Here, above the heads of the audience, she explores the dimension of weightlessness and sharpens our perceptions of a body in a borderline state: with smooth movements and unyielding concentration, Chloé Moglia works in the margins of transition between strength and weakness, danger and miraculous lightness. Through its barely perceptible movements, her body appears to become one with the iron structure, opening up a space that seems entirely terrestrial yet not of this world. For this state, Chloé Moglia uses the concept of “suspension” – of particles that can be found in mid-air. What remains when everything is taken away and emptiness takes over?
