Dance film: Still life on the Island by Nicole Beutler  
Thirteen dancers with  wooden rings, pay tribute to the forces of nature and a slower pace. Their exact movements evoke images of the rising sun and the crescent moon. Planets circling around each other that will never touch. In dialogue with the wind and the tides on the beachof West-Terschelling, STILL LIFE ON THE ISLAND creates space for beauty, solace and a new healing balance. A meditative ritual about togetherness at a distance, about connection with each other and the natural habitat surrounding us.   

A poetic dance film by choreographer Nicole Beutler and videographer Claire Bontje.  STILL LIFE ON THE ISLAND is an adaptation of one scene from Beutler's dance duet 4: STILL LIFE(2013) into a group manifestation for the public space. This meticulous micro-spectacle is inspired by the Reifentanz (1927), aring dance by Bauhaus choreographer Oskar Schlemmer. As in the Bauhaus dances of the early 20th century, STILL LIFE ON THE ISLAND is all about the interplay of light, rings, shadows and the performer's creativeagency within their environment.

Roser Lopéz Espinosa 

TRAMA is set in the form of a concert, with its different voices, tuning and discordant notes. We are a group. A band. A gang. We interlace bodies and relations to trace a physical score of interdependency and mutual trust. Of agreements and dissensions, of shared balance, disorders and even Gordian knots. Of bodies that fold back on themselves and actions that unfold on collective movements. TRAMA is a score about the group, its boundaries and where it drifts
