Arno Schuitemaker

Public rehearsals

Dutch cho­reo­graph­er Arno Schuitemaker’s piece is about dis­tance and the rela­tion to oth­ers ; it uses video and a stage whose lim­its are blurry. 

How can we move for­ward and get closer to oth­ers? That ques­tion per­meates Remem­ber­ing the future, which first presents dan­cers who stay still in front of the audi­ence before they start mov­ing back­wards; behind them, the back wall moves and the space they dance in expands as its bor­ders get fur­ther apart. Remem­ber­ing the future takes the dan­cers and the audi­ence through some­thing which slowly expands, where the dan­cers seem drawn by some invis­ible cur­rent, ebbing and flow­ing, immersed in anoth­er dimen­sion. Move­ments expand too, as the dan­cers go in every dir­ec­tion, each with their own way of mov­ing. To devel­op this par­tic­u­lar rela­tion to space, Arno Schuite­m­aker uses video tech­no­lo­gies as an integ­rated ele­ment; a cam­era films the dan­cers live from the top, and these shots, asso­ci­ated with oth­er prerecor­ded images, are pro­jec­ted on the back wall. The black floor mir­rors their dance and cre­ates a space of mul­tiple pos­sib­il­it­ies, as the music and lights come togeth­er to rein­force this con­ver­ging effect towards the dan­cers and slowly abol­ish distances.
