Drexel University's Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design presents acclaimed French choreographer Boris Charmatz's experimental performance piece Levée des conflits, as part of the 2016 Fringe Festival. Levée des conflits is a work for 24 dancers based on 25 repetitive movements that unfold over time. Each dancer develops a movement that is transmitted to the performers, accumulating in space, and building person by person, from a solo into more direct relationships and interactions, and finally expanding into a performance of the full series by the entire cast.

This performance is part of Charmatz's residency in Philadelphia, which will also include a series of workshops and discussions.
