STILL LIFE IN THE PARK/CITY/MUSEUM

A ritual of slowing down at an unexpected site in the city. This 'ringdance', inspired by Oskar Schlemmer's Reifentanz, creates space for the imagination. This poetic intervention is a meticulous micro-spectacle, toying with time and space. For this poetic intervention, Nicole Beutler adapted a scene from the piece 4: STILL LIFE into a group manifestation for nine or twelve dancers.

The piece has been performed at Bilderdijkpark in Amsterdam at the invitation of WHY NOT FESTIVAL OFF VENUE during Julidans Festival 2018. During UITMARKT 2018 at Muziekgebouw aan 't IJ, on the Marineterrein and on the roof of NEMO in Amsterdam. In Rotterdam as part of the opening of the 100 years of Bauhaus exhibition at Boijmans Van Beuningen and at the Rotterdam Museum Night 2019.
