About Jasper Moes


Ballet & Discipline have always been inseparable, but this link now gets a new meaning.

PANOPTICON is an interdisciplinary performance for three dancers, a musician and video, inspired by Michel Foucault’s Discipline and Punish: the birth of the prison. “Working with mechanisms of power, PANOPTICON uses the theatre to show the different layers of ‘the game of power’, between performers and audience, between play and reality, between disciplines, between indiviual and system, and between image and space.”

Where? Melkweg Theatre, Amsterdam.
When? March 2/3/4; 20.30h
