The moon is the moon is the moon
By revealing the different building blocks of a dance trio, The moon is the moon is the moon peels away the many layers of choreography. Compare it to the numerous drafts and studies that painters make before they create their painting, how they explore different perspectives and forms in drawings. This dance performance wants to give value to these choreographic ‘studies’ and, in so doing, uncover the many layers within the creative process. The three dancers and composer Gerrit Valckenaers invite you to penetrate the dance and experience it more deeply.
Just like Tibetan monks spend several weeks constructing a sand mandala to then sweep up the coloured grains, as a symbol of the impermanence of material things, this dance is, in a similar way, meticulously constructed in order then to be erased. What remains is the collective experience of the dancers and the audience.
