Rule of Three positions itself as a danced performance somewhere in between a concert and a short-story collection. The vibe of a hard-core nightclub combines with the feeling of getting lost in the pages of a book. At times, rhythm, light and movement accumulate, at other times they are stripped down. This work is an untamed meditation which, just like these times, builds on contrasts: between stillness and explosion, precision and intuition, heart and reason. For Rule of Three, Jan Martens works for the very first time with live music as a driving force. NAH, an American music producer and drummer will blend live and programmed drums with found sounds and heavily manipulated samples. His music is rooted in DIY punk, noise, avant-jazz and the restlessness of hip-hop.
