KWAT is a choreography for three priests based on Samuel Beckett’s theatre piece "Quad II" (1980). As in Beckett’s piece, KWAT is a mechanized, ritual dance that systematically investigates the rules which govern how you should move in public space. Beckett was inspired by a quote from Dante’s "Inferno" which suggests that people who always walk on the left will end up in hell. With this heathen ritual in mind, Beckett let four performers, dressed in primary colours, come from various corners and go away again like ghostly walkers.
In KWAT, three abstractly clothed priests go around the church on hover boards. At set times they will perform this withdrawn, slightly disruptive ritual at De GROM.
