The climax [of the performance] is smart and touching. (…) Then you see how there can be a dialogue, a shared universe, between two different worlds. Exactly what a metaphor does – Mirjam van der Linden, De Volkskrant (4/5 stars)

The choreography of Schuitemaker is transparant and unimposing, almost poetry, (…) with subtle lines, flowing movements and inventive reflections between the ‘I’ and the ‘other’ – Kester Freriks, Theaterkrant.nl (4/5 stars)

Utmost concentration and extreme control over the entire body. And the audience becomes thoughtful and enchanted. – Joris van Laak, Brabants Dagblad

I is an Other is a breath of fresh air. Schuitemaker chooses for depth and content. – Pauline Weijs, Cultuurbewust.nl (4/5 stars)

Emma Martin’s “Tundra”

In a nameless land, where there’s more darkness than daylight…he sat in the long white hut, at the table, tapping /his mother sat at the back of his mouth and the black sun was born/ the black sun was born

Tundra is a wild and dangerous place inhabited by a cast of outsiders, where tension and absurdity simmer and the unseen world stirs. Reality and fantasy blur as the characters meet their darker selves and strive to escape to an imagined future filled with hope and possibility.

Summoning beauty and transformation, Tundra explores the antagonistic relations between darkness and light and the poetry of heaven and hell erupting in and around all of us, via folklore and surrealist cinema. Emma Martin Dance presents a bold and ambitious show which will open the 10th Dublin Dance Festival, featuring an exciting blend of theatre, live music and dance.
