5: ECHO is a dance performance in which past and present are woven together. Nicole Beutler delved into Dutch dance history for this contemporary 'Gesamtkunstwerk'. There was a lot brewing in dance during the turbulent Nineteen Seventies.The 'anything goes' mentality blew over from New York. Performers skipped and rolled with 'natural' movements across the stage at the legendary Shaffy Theatre and dancers crawled like gleaming lizards on the railings of Carré.In 5: ECHO, Nicole Beutler investigates whether this avant-garde work kicks up as much dust now as it did then.
PRESS ABOUT 5:ECHO
"Nicole Beutler has drawn her inspiration from a rich source in Dutch dance history. And it will be familiar even to those who have not seen Bianca van Dillen’s work because her work clearly exerted a powerful influence on subsequent generations. Beutler’s choice is therefore an interesting one."- Marcelle Schots, Theaterkrant
