Gaston Core


The Very Last Northern White Rhino

Gaston Core is a dancer, actor and cultural manager who conducts formal research into different urban dance styles (krumping, finger tutting, waving, Afro, etc.) to present an image of a man who dances because he has discovered, in the words of Paul Valéry, that we have “too much energy for our needs”. He portrays dance as excess, as a celebration of life. Dancing to the point of exhaustion, dancing until the very end because there may well be very little else we can do.
