Body of Work is a 220-page journey through the rich oeuvre of the leading choreographer and visual theater maker Nicole Beutler. This overview of twenty years of theater offers an insight into Beutler’s method, philosophy and idealism. Essays, interviews, hundreds of photos, hand-drawn storyboards and an extensive dictionary make her approach tangible: making theater as an act of empathy, gathering and co-creation.
Together with a close-knit team, Beutler creates Gesamtkunstwerks that surprise with beauty and expressiveness. Her multifaceted compositions of dance, text, music and images invite time and again to critical reflection on human existence. Nicole Beutler’s work is always related to the world and opens new spaces in our thinking. A unique voice in contemporary Dutch theatre.
