The Waves

The Waves is a ritual, a manifesto, an immersive experience in which feminine beauty, vulnerability and pain are central. On the wave of a feminine energy, a physical space is created in which the five players dare to look traumas of oppression and abuse of power in the eye and finally bury them and leave them behind. An urgent and uncompromising theatrical experience.

What is the relationship between movement and typography, between dance and letter images? In her new performance Letters 2 Dance, Femke Gyselinck and two performers create a dance alphabet that it is for you, the audience, to decipher.

Sometime in the not-so-distant future, two friends meet in a forest. Michel, just back from two years of deep mindfulness in an ashram, have been keeping up with the news. Taylor hurries to tell him about his adventures with the 'Context and Modality Platform', a kind of political party that – as an out-of-control joke and against all odds – has ended up at the gates of power. Have Taylor and his friends managed to stay true to their ideals?

In the early 20th century, there was an amusement park (luna park) where the current Kaaitheater building sits and hence the building's original name: the Lunatheater. But did you know that Kaaitheater once also housed a carpet shop? Step behind the scenes and discover corners that are normally off-limits to the public.

Adieu & Merci
Adieu & Merci

The performance is over, the lights come on. The audience begins to applaud. The dancer returns to the stage and greets the audience. What exactly happens at such a moment? To highlight this particular theatrical code, Latifa Laâbissi puts herself in the shoes of a paradoxical figure. In this end without end, which repeatedly performs a different variation of the same greeting, stories intertwine and memories emerge.
