„One is as if transported through the dust of time, in a tranquil dream and of a great richness, on the verge of reaching a truth which always escapes, finally opening up to an infinitely poetic prophecy.“ — Thomas Adam-Garnung, Ballroom Revue
The Quiet brings together five women in an unsettling choreography of the ordinary. They are quiet in action, set in motion by expressions of oral traditions. Reciting, chanting and praying, they forcefully move into and out of defined and defining patterns, propelling the quotidian into transcendence. By calling attention to that which is transmitted across generations, The Quiet engages with time in some of its overlooked forms: the taking of time, the passing of time, the falling out of time.
Together with the dancers Lisa Drake, Kristine Slettevold, Alexandra Campbell, Agnieszka Długoszewska, and Cecilia Roos as well as his longstanding collaborators Minna Tiikkainen, David Kiers, and Cristina Nyffeler, Jefta van Dinther continues the intertwining of space, sound, light and body that characterizes his choreographies.
