In 7: TRIPLE MOON - the third and final part of her Bauhaus-trilogy exploring basic geometric shapes, Nicole Beutler takes the triangle as her starting point. In our Western (Christian) culture the triangle and the number three are often charged with a spiritual significance. First and foremost it is a reference to the Holy Trinity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. With the female trinity of the Maiden, Mother and Crone, Nicole offers a pagan female alternative.

7: TRIPLE MOON shows three danced portraits, in which the different stages in the life of a woman are embodied by an ex-ballerina, an experienced performer and a young dancer. Strong and fragile, naive and accurate, mundane and ephemeral. The metaphysical, spiritual aspect of the magical triangle is reflected in a staged illusion.
