The young Romanian choreographer Eduard Gabia – who has danced with Katrine Ponties and Thomas Plischke, among others – likes to explore the limits of physical experience. He has for example walked around blindfold for days; in BONUS he controls and manipulates what the audience does and does not get to see and hear. In My presence – proof of time he exposes the many forms in which we experience time.

Dancer-choreographer Benoît Lachambre made‘I’ Is Memory for the dancer Louise Lecavalier (from the LaLaLa Human Steps company). In this solo the body is no longer guided by the mind but by ‘an inner explosion’. A dance of a being in full metamorphosis.’

The young choreographer Eleanor Bauer is literally and figuratively a big girl, a talented dancer, singer and comedian. Last season, she closed the WoWmen! Festival with this solo where the dancer’s delight in performing is tangible.

WORKING TITLE FESTIVAL - (g)hosts is a dance performance, a sound experiment and a radio broadcast. We enter the theatre to find a world of unnerving illusions. A place haunted by opinions, sensations, emotions and other presences. Together we’ll explore the testimonies of the performers fantasy while channeling a few along the way. Please don’t be scared, be invited.

In 2009 Trajal Harrell created Twenty Looks or Paris is Burning at The Judson Church (S). What, he wondered, would have happened if in 1963 someone from the voguing scene in Harlem had performed alongside the early postmodernists in Greenwich Village? The answer is a series of five choreographic pieces, in five sizes from XS to XL. (M)IMOSA is the medium-sized episode and is the work of four choreographer-dancers.

In his new solo, Thomas Hauert dances to various different versions of Monteverdi’s baroque madrigal Si dolce è’l tormento and to 12 Madrigali by Salvatore Sciarrino. For Hauert, this musical poem about impossible love symbolises the tension between longing for an ideal and understanding the tormenting truth that the ideal will remain out of reach.

Thirteen years after its premiere, Boris Charmatz dances (untitled) (2000), the last work that the British-German artist and Turner Prize candidate Tino Sehgal created for theatre before he moved on to visual art. The performance seems to sum up this transition between the two art forms. As in a museum of dance, 20th-century dance is exhibited in a theatrical way.

The Moroccan choreographer Taoufiq Izeddiou and his dancers cross a site of 100m, but they take their time to do it, so that you, the audience, can take it calmer too. Sit down, watch and relax!

Mette Ingvartsen aims to explore and expose the fact that pornography has rooted itself deep within our society. In the fourth instalment of her Red Pieces cycle, she mixes physical actions with narrative passages, presenting you with a veritable mental choreography. She again holds up her magnifying glass to sexuality – resulting in an extraordinarily intense production.

Radouan Mriziga approaches dance from an architectural perspective. He searches for a transparent structure in which movement and narrative are distilled from constructing. For 3600 seconds, body and spirit merge in a space where the performers become both craftsman and architect.

Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Jérôme Bel found each other in conversations about each other’s work. The expressive and mathematical choreography enters into dialogue with the master of ‘conceptual’ dance. What they share is the curiosity for what the body produces on stage. The point of departure for 3Abschied is the last part of Mahler’s Lied von der Erde: Der Abschied (The Farewell).

In ELEANOR!, her debut production, Eleanor Bauer presented a lively and (self) critical diatribe on artists who want to do their work honestly and yet have to fight for recognition and money in the bank. In 50/50 Mette Ingvartsen seeks a form of physical expression that is both extreme and spectacular.
