4: Still Life in openingsprogramma Museumnacht

1 November, Oude Kerk Amsterdam

On this years opening night of Museumnacht, Nicole Beutler presents a fragment of 4: STILL LIFE, in which she distils elements from the long history of partner dance. Onstage are a woman and a man. Their physicality and actions are guided by the principles of body geometry, and the geometry of space and light. All the elements of the piece are interdependent and composed musically in space and time; leading or following, merging or interfering, distant or intimate. 4: STILL LIFE is a court dance, a mating dance, a play, a ‘Lichtspiel’, a ritual. Beutler drew inspiration from the early twentieth-century Bauhaus movement for this ‘mechanical ballet’ dance duet.
