Based on interviews with dancers from the Arab world,Turning Point questions the misunderstandings, ambiguities, stereotypes, metaphors, metamorphoses, fantasies, prejudices and imaginations linked to perceptions of dance in this region. Through movement rooted in the pelvis, manipulation of costume elements, and live electro-percussive music, Nancy Naous questions the spectator's gaze and challenges images rooted in our collective imagination.

In their latest creation, Brasil-based choreographers Marcela Levi and Lucía Russo explore the various possibilities offered by the tremolo, a vibration effect between two different notes. By means of Kraftwerk’s and Bruno Tucunduva Ruviaro’s electronic music, tap-dancing, and Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, six dancers produce a minutely detailed choreographic research around vibration in the body.

Is dance a language? And if so, how does it speak? In In Other Words, Ingrid Berger Myhre explores the compatibility between dance and language. With the stage as an empty page, the choreographic writing unfolds as a physical discourse with its own syntax, grammar and vocabulary. With ingenuity and charm, Myhre presents a relativizing take on dance.

B**** is as much an intimate moment as a performance, which paves the way for female victims of violence to an individual and collective consciousness. Starting from hip-hop and breakdance, and with martial arts influences such as Kung-fu and classical Khmer dance, Yipoon Chiem tells a story of the loss of the soul's sense of purpose, that makes you angry without having the strength to do anything.

NBH (Natural Born Healer) is a poetic solo performance, halfway between fiction and autobiography. Jihan Imago speaks of homelessness, of a long journey of healing, of a tragic destiny where the protagonist escapes death and sets out to meet himself. One walks there as in a dream inspired by David Lynch's cinema.

Listen Here: These Woods is a literal invitation to go into nature. Set to the soundtrack of the forest, of wind rustling through the leaves and birds zipping by in the branches, the forest is these four dancers’ home, as they draw you into feeling the dynamic aliveness of the forest. The performance becomes a beautiful exchange between forest, dance, and audience, as we all momentarily share space with other living creatures in nature. A show for anyone who wants to strengthen their connection with nature!

In CASCADE, Meg Stuart and seven dancers reset the clock, and challenge reality to reconfigure itself. Balancing on the edge of a world that is rapidly disappearing, they plunge their bodies into another dimension. Step into this ceremony as exhaustion strategy against fear and the desire for control. It is a free fall to the crumbling of time!

This dance solo by Betty Tchomanga evolves around the mythological figure of Mami Wata (‘Mammy Water’). She is a goddess of water, a figure from the depths of night, infused with power and sexuality. This stranded mermaid faces the people watching her. This mermaid jumps. Jumps to resist. Jumps to reach. Jumps to become. Jumps to die. Jumps to exist.

Ræv rehearsal* invites you to rehearse new forms of coming together. Glow shoes, flashing lights, portable audio sculptures, a mobile speaker system and of course: you. These are the ingredients for a new kind of manifestation, a rehearsal in which the participants jointly create a movable light show to a techno beat. How do you get movement patterns going in a crowd? What movements unleash energy and a sense of freedom?

After The Six Brandenburg Concerto, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker continues her journey with Bach in dialogue with these variations. Along with pianists Pavel Kolesnikov and Alain Franco she brings The Goldberg Variations, BWV 988, a solo performance danced by herself. Here too, the musical score forms a blueprint for the choreography.
