The American dancer and choreographer Connor Schumacher is one of the mavericks of the Dutch dance scene. Volkskrant journalist Miriam van der Linden praises his ‘strange aesthetics’ as ‘unique’. Krisztina de Châtel on Schumacher: “Connor is un believably clever and original. It’s the unconventional in his work that attracts me. He shows a world of extremes where opposites come together; he collaborates well with others, and dares to be political.” Since 2013, Schumacher has pursued his further development with Dansateliers.
In the program Threesome, Schumacher combines three performances in one program. The hit performance Exhibition from Krisztina’s Keuze 2; the trio Asset, developed for Conny Janssen Danst; Liability & Equity, till now only seen in the studio and at the Nederlandse Dansdagen; and the performance The fool plays with himself.
