Thief – After – Clip 0 (zero) is a grand performance for only two female dancers, apart from the 30 stuffed crows sitting on a roost. They look at us, alive but dead.
The mighty space is outside and inside at the same time, nature has forced and twisted itself into the room and the mountain is coming up through the floor.
But nature is also lifeless and deprived… We find ourselves subsequent to something… what lies prior to what we see?
Who is the thief?
As a poetic, dark absurd interplay between two women who can also be one, the performance illustrates our complex actions. We are both nature and intellect, we create, and we consume and destroy. In a dark rom of faith, the incredible physicality of dance shows us the power that is in our bodies and in our existence. In the end, almost in the dark, the naked backs insist on breath, force and life.
