Created by Jan Martens, one of the most original Belgian choreographers of his generation, RULE OF THREE is a new work from someone who likes to surprise.

Falling somewhere between concert and short stories, it features American drummer NAH performing live with the three dancers, recreating the atmosphere of a hardcore nightclub. Rhythm, light and movement accumulate, before being stripped back in an untamed meditation, reminiscent of getting lost in the pages of a book.

“Martens captures the mindset of our hectic age in the shimmering interplay between dance and music”
