nosotros by Wubkje Kuindersma [behind the scenes] | Dutch National Ballet

“What I really like about this Spanish word is that it seems to be a contraction of we (nos) and the others (otros).” The piece, set to several compositions that are all linked to Bach, is about the strong mutual bonds between a group of people. It is about we and the other, and how the two are ultimately interchangeable, but also about the different sides contained in each individual. In the work, Kuindersma uses shadows and echoes, which can represent the other, but also a part of ourselves, and she consciously plays with gender equality.
