THE FOOL

Choreographer Connor Schumacher performs “the Fool” during Pure Rubens in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.

Using the basic metaphoric code of Opening and Closing, The Fool analyzes what is real, what is moving, what is meaning and what are the myths we gather around us. The Fool helps us to reflect on the body and its ability to perceive its surroundings and the way it uses the past and the future to help construct meaning for our survival.

For the series “Moois” for RTV Rijnmondt, I got to do an interview with Connor and make a registration of his performance at Boijmans.
