The poetic dance film STILL LIFE ON THE ISLAND by the visual choreographer Nicole Beutler pays tribute to slowness and the power of nature.

It is an impressive meeting between technique and landscape, because this ring dance by 15 dancers was filmed high above Terschelling with the help of a drone. In dialogue with the wind and tides on the beach of West-Terschelling, STILL LIFE ON THE ISLAND creates space for beauty, comfort and a new, healing balance. A meditative ritual about distance together, with each other and the natural space around us.

This performance is an adaptation of a scene from Beutler's dance duet 4: STILL LIFE into a group manifestation for public space. Inspired by the Reifentanz (1927) by Bauhaus choreographer Oskar Schlemmer, this precise micro-spectacle revolves around the special interplay of light, rings, shadow and the creativity of the performer in his environment.
