Plateau Effect

Looking for grandiose dancing? Unique choreography? A artistic spectacle to end all spectacles? Look no further than ‘Plateau Effect’, Jefta Van Dinther’s most recent oeuvre. Always one to disorientate his audience, the Swedish choreographer has conceived a boldly physical dance for nine members of the Cullberg ballet (stars in their native Scandinavia). The concept: the dancers spend the entire sixty minutes perilously perched on see-sawing planks of wood. This works both as a visual metaphor for the instability of today’s social fabric and as a prop for some glorious communal dance set-pieces. A rare spectacle.
