JAN MARTENS: Rule of Three
© Phile Deprez
„In Rule of Three the combination of dance, music, light, and text is at service of a global audiovisual effect; abstract yet very well defined in its aesthetic agenda.“ — El Balandre
Rule of Three takes as its starting point our ability to zap in a flash from one impression to another. A sequence of scenes echoes the fragmentary experience of reality that is the consequence of this overload of stimuli. Rule of Three positions itself as a danced performance somewhere in between a concert and a short-story collection – written with bodies, light, music, costumes and text. An untamed meditation which, just like these times, builds on contrasts: between stillness and explosion, precision and intuition, heart and reason. On stage, performers Steven Michel, Julien Josse and Courtney May Robertson engage in a dialogue with NAH’s eclectic musical composition and keep driving up the sensory stimulation.
