"Thema 3" is dedicated to the mysterious number three. Since time immemorial magical powers have been ascribed to the figure: in mythology we encounter the Trinity of the Moongoddess; in the world of fairytales and legends it is not unusual to meet a trio of mysterious fairies, who hold the strings of fate in their hands. If these three fairies happen to cross your path, with luck you might even be granted three wishes. On the stage there is something special about Chekhovs "Three Sisters" and in football it is the hat trick. Science tells us that all the smallest pieces of the universe are only made up of pieces yet smaller still, quarks and that my hat would not be my hat if it didn't have three corners. As the Roman poet Virgil wrote: Ise! Numero Deus impare gaudet - God rejoices over the triad. In three weeks, with three dancers Anna Holter uses the medium of dance and movement to investigate exactly what it is about the simple number three which can provoke such great emotion.
