Studio Cité orients, directs, diverts and distorts your view of the world. Step inside a driving mirror cart by yourself, form a dancing circle with your fellow audience members, or stand on the side-lines watching how people with periscopic masks try to find their way. Benjamin Vandewalle organizes an artistic funfair that offers unexpected experiences on Brussels’ squares.

In Moving Ballads, Femke Gyselinck takes the word ‘ballad’ literally: it is a danced song. Inspired by folk legend Joni Mitchell, she invites you to explore the connections between the music, the words and the movements. Welcome to this no-man’s-land where movements do not speak.

Every age has its wonders of the world: the impossible that people still manage to build – bigger and more impressive than anything we’d seen before. But how remarkable is the small body that invents and creates all these colossuses? In 7, Radouan Mriziga juxtaposes two benchmarks: the built environment, made to impress, and the ultimate wonder of the world: the human body itself.

Drumming (1998) is returning to Brussels! It’s one of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s most iconic choreographies, written to the eponymous, minimalistic percussion score by Steve Reich. A  wave of pure dance and pure sound, a vortex of vital energy.

Advertising, film, magazines, the internet: we are constantly surrounded by images of sexualized bodies that display the intimate and the erogenous. Flesh, fluids, skin, breasts and asses belong to our everyday surroundings. The Blue Piece is a museum version of Mette Ingvartsen’s to come (2005), performed by two dancers at KANAL – Centre Pompidou.

Screws turns around the relationship between the body and the object in various ways. Different objects attached to the body either provide support or throw the body off balance. In this way gravity can be overcome or enhanced.
