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 Bauhaus Trilogy

Circle, square and triangle: abstract shapes that were important to the Bauhaus art school at the beginning of the 20th century. Director and choreographer Nicole Beutler took these abstract forms as the starting point for three performances: 5: ECHO (the circle), 6: THE SQUARE (the square) and 7: TRIPLE MOON (the triangle). These dance pieces invite us to reflect on the norms and values ​​of society and on how we organize our lives. A ritual about time, an encounter with populism and an invitation to new feminism. The geometric shapes provide Nicole Beutler with a framework that emphasizes extremes and encourages the viewer to think.

Diamond Dancers

Een grote groep line dancers gaat met een witte touringcar naar Amsterdam om een flashmob te doen op de Dam. Vaak wordt zo’n verrassingsoptreden uitgevoerd door jongeren, maar nu zijn het ouderen die zichzelf met veel plezier aan de omstanders laten zien.

"Wat ons het meest heeft geraakt tijdens het maken van Diamond Dancers, de dansfilm die wij samen met Nicole Beutler in het kader van Point Taken hebben gemaakt, is de samenwerking met de amateurdansers. Het is erg indrukwekkend om te zien wat dans in een mensenleven kan betekenen." Quirine Racké & Helena Muskens

Deze korte film van Nicole Beutler, Quirine Racké en Helena Muskens is doorlopend te zien in de Salon van ITA. Op zondag van 17:00 tot 23:00 en maandag van 17:00 tot 22:00.

Press

'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
