Threesome

Connor Schumacher

Connor Schumacher has been nominated for the Dutch Dance Festival Maastricht Prize 2019. Threesomeis a triple bill that opens with his successful piece Exhibitionfrom Krisztina de Chatel’s Keuze 2. In the second piece, Asset, Liability, Equity, that Connor made for Conny Janssen Danst, he transforms the three elements of the balance sheet in accounting into a violent power struggle. The triple bill is concluded by The Fool Playswith Himself, in which the fool is Connor Schumacher’s alter ego; a character who reacts frankly in every situation he finds himself in.

An immersive experience that leads you into the world of Connor Schumacher as choreographer.

In his idiosyncratic, performative work, Connor presents the world the way it is: hardcore and in your face. He is influenced by jazz and the musical resulting in absurd, humor-ous and abrasive scenes.
