Short Dance Film
Collaboration of Artists
Equilibrium is a short dance film performed by the spectacular freestyle skater Marco Gerris. At the edge of the harbor of Amsterdam where an old factory building, a 19th century iron crane and a new bridge intersect along the water, a young man performs a skate dance. He depicts in three different dance parts, three stages of a man's life: liveliness at sunrise, strength at mid-day and equilibrium at twilight. His journey begins at dawn. A young boy and an old man, who arrive mysteriously and disappear into the darkness over the bridge at nightfall, accompany him. The dance combines spectacular skating with poetic imagery. A quest for freedom.
Marco Gerris is the Netherlands' Freestyle Skating Champion and mastermind behind the skate musical ISH, bringing music, theatre, dance and skating together in one remarkable high-energy mix. As a choreographer and filmmaker, Ruth Meyer has created a number of theatrical dance performances and films in which dancers are confronted with unusual locations and movement situations, such as a glacier (Breath Chrystal) and sand dunes (Zenith).
