NBprojects realises projects of the choreographer and curator Nicole Beutler. For the performances 6: THE SQUARE and 7: TRYPTICHON Beutler was inspired by the geometric principles of the Bauhaus: circular, square and triangular shapes form a substantive theme. 6: THE SQUARE (2016) is concerned with the square and in 7: TRYPTICHON (2017) Beutler moves on to the triangle/the trinity. Beutler’s work explores the idea of the Gesamtkunstwerk as a conception of art in which different disciplines such as architecture, design and theater are intertwined. Ammodo supports 6: THE SQUARE and 7: TRYPTICHON to contribute to the development of Nicole Beutler who, with these performances, is taking the plunge as a choreographer into the world of larger halls and theatres.
