Magical triptych: strong and fragile, naive and confident, worldly and ephemeral.
Dance performance 7: TRIPLE MOON is the last part of Beutler's Bauhaus trilogy. After exploring the circle and the square, Beutler now takes the triangle as a starting point. Since the times of the alchemists, the triangle has held spiritual meaning, with both male and female aspects. By connecting the triangle to the mythical triple moon goddess, Beutler highlights the female perspective.
7: TRIPLE MOON is a magical triptych with three female dancers from different generations. They dance their disarming manifestos across a landscape of images by artistic duo Helena Muskens & Quirine Racké to a cinematic soundtrack by composer Gary Shepherd, at once strong and fragile, naive and confident, worldly and ephemeral.
'The performance is therefore an ode to the woman, her strength and her mystery, in dance and beautiful theatre that will certainly be one for the books.' - Trouw
'The performance takes on an otherworldly air when projections and a smoke screen transform into gigantic holograms. In it, the three faces of the dancers morph into one: a triple primal goddess - a forceful image of female power.' - Trou
'A performance as ritual installation that cycles through the same stages over and over again.' - Theaterkrant
