The militant force, solidarity and mutual support that women experience mutually in areas of conflict is central to this choreographic diptych by the great lady of Dutch dance Krisztina de Châtel and the important choreographic talent Astrid Boons.
With Scala, De Châtel chooses the tension between the natural tendency of women towards connection and harmony with their desire for independence, freedom, and self-preservation. She challenges her five dancers to struggle for their equilibrium on a meters-high, revolving staircase.

In Arise, Astrid shows the personal perspective, where the social and societal expectations placed on women prescribe which ambitions are suitable. Three dancers struggle with physically compelling restrictions. Restrictions that consist of nothing more than light.
