Heine Avdal and Yukiko Shinozaki experiment with light as a measurement of time: using black outs they create an illusion of darkness within which one can sense subtle shifts and changes in brightness and temperature. Light thus takes on almost tangible forms.

production

Rain (2001) is one of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's most effervescent performances and is set to Steve Reichs Music for 18 Musicians. Mathematical figures, continuous repetitions, the geometric utilisation of space and the art of continual variation: here De Keersmaeker pushes to its limits everything that had gradually become her trademark.

Flood is a choreography of entrances and exits. In the midst of our throwaway society and the flood of new technologies and ideas, Daniel Linehan questions the cultural domination of the new. At the same time, he considers what is disappearing, and what is becoming superfluous at an ever-faster pace.

Prototype
Prototype

production

Marc Vanrunxt creates a dance performance based on the work of the solitary Lucien Goethals, pioneer of Flemish electronic music. The result acts as a journey through time, towards what in the 1970s was still the music of the future, and which quite possibly still sounds like that now.

production

What happens when Shakespeare’s rhythmic and poetic visual language becomes dance? Golden Hours (As you like it) – an encounter between Brian Eno and Shakespeare – draws you into a mildly ironic world, where the characters speak a language that doesn’t need deciphering to be grasped, yet isn’t pantomime.
