Intrinsic Moral Evil seems to be a tale of identity and coming of age. But above all, the three dancers play with the viewer’s perception and expectations: is it a memory, a dream, a search for identity ? Is it about losing friendship or about growing up? The layered story gradually develops; revealing its last secrets just before the end credits start. Inviting the audience to reflect and to make its own interpretation.
Harm Weistra is a visual artist with a fascination with the unpredictability and often cruelty of social relations and human behaviour. In his work, human relations are often the central medium and driving force, translated into various forms of artistic expressions such as film, photo, sculpture, and installation. He draws inspiration from his own experiences, as well as to his research. Harm Weistra lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netrelands. He holds a Master in Social Sciences and a Bachelor in Fine Arts. He studied fine arts at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam and the Willem de Kooning Academie in Rotterdam, from which he graduated in 2011.
