Described by Tanz magazine as a leading light in dance in the Netherlands, Arno Schuitemaker creates highly physical performances that combine dance with music and the space with lighting. If You Could See Me Now is the final part of a trilogy that explores the relationship between performers and the audience. The three dancers here concentrate on developing a repetitive and pumped-up movement that provokes fascination worthy of a dance floor being pushed to the limits of ecstasy. Beyond the experience and spectacle of endurance to which the spectator is invited, the skilful variations of movement invite an agility in looking that gives the title its meaning, before ramping up the tension and making the perception reality… Arno Schuitemaker succeeds in his gamble of disturbing the sensation of movement in a continuous process of appearance and disappearance that influences what we see. The eye works overtime as do the performers’ hearts subjected to the rhythmic pulsations of Wim Selles’ music.
