In I is an Other, Arno Schuitemaker examines the bodily life of metaphor. To the beat of a pulsating rhythm, a dialogue between performer Mitchell‐lee van Rooij and himself develops into an intriguing exchange, full of physical abandon. Through fusing, interfering, and transgressing, I is an Other intertwines body, voice, music and light, and ‐ like a metaphor ‐ forges one thing to exist in the context of something else.

 

I is an Other is produced by Stichting SHARP/ArnoSchuitemaker in coproduction with DansBrabant. The project is funded by Performing Arts Fund NL, SNS Reaal Fonds, VSBfonds, and the Netherland‐America foundation, and supported by Centre national de la danse (Paris), Dansehallerne (Copenhagen), HELLERAU – Europäisches Zentrum der Künste

(Dresden), The Duncan Dance Research Center (Athens) and Tanzquartier (Vienna) within the modul‐dance program of the European Dancehouse Network (EDN) as part of the EU Cultural Program, and the Abrons Art Center (New York City).

 

'The climax [of the performance] is smart and touching. (...) Then you see how there can be a dialogue, a shared universe, between two different worlds. Exactly what a metaphor does' ‐ Mirjam van der Linden, De Volkskrant (4/5 stars)

 

'The choreography of Schuitemaker is transparent and unimposing, almost poetry, (...) with subtle lines, flowing movements and inventive reflections between the 'I' and the 'other' ‐ Kester Freriks, Theaterkrant.nl (4/5 stars)

 

'I is an Other is a breath of fresh air. Schuitemaker chooses for depth and content.' ‐ Pauline Weijs, Cultuurbewust.nl

 

'Utmost concentration and extreme control over the entire body. And the audience becomes thoughtful and enchanted.' ‐ Joris van Laak, Brabants Dagblad
