After creating Empty moves (part I) in 2004, followed by (part II) in 2007, Angelin Preljocaj wished to pursue his study of movement based on the work Empty Words by John Cage.

“Empty moves consists of actions and movements inspired by the words and phonemes read by John Cage at the Teatro Lirico in Milan and recorded live on December 2nd, 1977. The notion of an alienation effect, the deconstruction of movement and a new expression of choreographic phrasing prevail over the definition and essence of the movements. Thus the piece establishes a link with Henry David Thoreau’s text, which was the inspiration for John Cage, and a connection to the unflinching determination of the instigator of that evening in Milan.” Angelin Preljocaj ( www.preljocaj.org )
