Flanders Representative - South Africa 1422

Rule of Three at the Market Theatre

Event date: 3/16/2019 7:00 PM Export event

From March to June 2019, contemporary dance from Flanders will hit South African stages. Three of Flanders’ leading dance companies showcase their work in Johannesburg, Oudtshoorn and Cape Town. The first performance will take place on 16 March at the Market Theatre in Johannesburg.

In Rule of Three, Flemish choreographer Jan Martens blends storytelling with live music to create a night-club vibe combined with the feeling of getting lost in the pages of a book, with the result of a stunning dance piece that is loud, bright and brilliant. A succession of dance tableaux unfolds with surprises lurking at every corner, unrelated short scenes give impressions of the profusion of information we are constantly subjected to.

American drummer and producer NAH sets the score for the entire performance mixing live and programmed drums with manipulated sounds, establishing a unique atmosphere where music, lights and movement, interact and overlap in a superb experimental mix. The layering of rhythm, light and music creates a variety of landscapes that might just as easily exude the sweet whiff of nonchalance as set bodies alight. Rule of Three is rebellious and fiery, it unleashes an untamed meditation on the contrasts of our era: numbness and explosion, the decided upon and the intuitive, the heart and the mind.

African première: Sat. 16 March 2019, Market Theatre, Johannesburg
