Three dancers in magnificent, sumptuously flowing baroque garments move across a green field. They slowly approach the spectators, separated from them by a white fence. A percussionist beats out a driving accompaniment. Hunting, conquest and military traditions – these are the themes which dancer and choreographer Rudi van der Merwe addresses in this site-specific performance. “Trophée” is a choreographic crusade that investigates the relationship between human beings and their environment, their need to draw boundaries and take possession, to domesticate and exploit.
