6: The Square

Beutler divides the hour stylistically into quarters

from: Volkskrant, 21/05/2016

“Surprisingly enough, she makes variations on the controlled patterns of nostalgic American square dancing. On a rigid square, the eight dancers dance zig zag mill figures, in which they rapidly change positions and partners, encouraged by a nice beat. The dance breathes a whiff of country and linedance, but then with hypnotic group patterns. Beutler divides the hour stylistically into quarters, with a returning element as starting point: The dancers repeatedly form the letters of the title.”
