The moon is the moon is the moon deconstructs the structure of a dance trio and exposes its building blocks. Just like the preparatory sketches for a painting, the performance begins with various perspectives and movements. The individual layers that you discover in the choreography invite you to see things in new ways.

How does your perception of a dance or music sequence change when it is combined with a different choreography or a different musical composition? What meanings, impressions and images are conjured, and what unexpected relationships to listening and looking are stirred?

July 1968. The legendary Paradise Now by The Living Theatre premieres at the Festival d’Avignon. The actors attempted to unleash a revolution by getting the audience into a state of readiness. Half a century later, Michiel Vandevelde is exploring the vestiges of the legacy of May ’68 with a new generation of young people.

A man moves carefully between cardboard set pieces. Everything appears peaceful in this stylized paradise, until a sudden rain shower escalates into a destructive deluge. A decade after the première of BLESSED, Francisco Camacho continues to cling to a world that has long been left in ruins.

In 2017, Salva Sanchis and Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker adapted A Love Supreme with four young, male dancers. This exceptionally vital production was one of the highlights of the last season, and was promptly selected for the TheaterFestival. Join the dancers, and abandon yourself once again to Coltrane’s spiritual ode to divine love!

Achterland (1990) is a pivotal production in Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s oeuvre. It was the first time that the choreographer created dance material specifically for men and that she gave musicians a central role on the stage. To the tones of Györgi Ligeti and Eugène Ysaÿe, the minimalism and femininity of her earlier work made room for an ambiguous no man’s land that blurred boundaries and signs. A reprisal to look forward to!
