Diamond Dancers (2010)
- Nicole Beutler
- Quirine Racké en Helenas Muskens
A large group of line dancers travels to Amsterdam in a white tour bus to perform a flash mob in front of the Royal Palace at Dam Square. A flash mob is usually a surprise performance by young people, but now it is a group of elderly dancers who enjoy showing themselves to the passers-by and turn the expectations of the growing audience upside down.
“Working with Helena Muskens and Quirine Racke went very smoothly. Right from the very first little idea we came up with everything together and took each step together. This was my first film project, and it has greatly increased my understanding of the processes involved in making a high-quality film. Editing is actually a choreography of images.”
“What we found most affecting about making Diamond Dancers, the dance film we made with Nicole Beutler, was working together with the amateur dancers. Seeing how much dance can affect people’s lives made a big impression on us.”
