If I Can’t Dance proudly presents the first restaging of the play Five Sisters (1982) by Guy de Cointet at Frascati WG in Amsterdam on Friday 28 and Saturday 29 October 2011.
Five Sisters is a performance that oozes with the West Coast culture of health and beauty. It presents the story of five sisters, who busy themselves with the problems and pleasures of modern life on a Sunday afternoon. The California sun provokes their reactions, emotions and moods. With Five Sisters, de Cointet explored the affective wellbeing of women who have changing, restless, encounters in their parental home, discussing issues of wardrobe, suntan, health, exotic holidays, work and painting. Through a combination of minimalist and baroque elements, the artist plays with the construction of individuality, the expression of emotion and the various interpretations of language.
This restaging of Five Sisters is the result of a research conducted by art historian Marie de Brugerolle, as part of If I Can’t Dance’s programme Performance in Residence, and addresses questions around the idea of ‘making Five Sisters anew’.
