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.

As a new voice within the contemporary Indonesian dance landscape, Eko Supriyanto explores the relationship between Javanese cultural heritage and the rhythm of the underwater world – a world without gravity where new perspectives emerge. He draws from his classical dance training, his diving experience, and the Javanese agricultural tradition of carving in the ground.

Fri 28.04 - Sat 29.04.17

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.

The transition to a sustainable society has been the central theme in Vera Mantero’s work for several years. In The Clean and the Dirty, this grande dame of Portuguese contemporary dance focuses on interior transition. On taking care of that precarious thing, the ‘self’.

The French choreographer Rachid Ouramdane has created a ‘sfumato’ choreography in which the scenes flow into one another and the boundaries of the bodies appear to dissolve. The dancers evolve in a landscape of mist and rain. The choreography is a metaphor for the loss of habitats, the exile to unknown places, the memory that remains..

Mette Ingvartsen has created a series of four performances in which the question of ‘non-human actions’ in a choreography plays a central role. In The Artificial Nature Project the stage is filled with all kinds of objects and materials, set into motion by the dancers who are part of a swirling mass; a mass of objects that seem to be alive but are not human.

Wed 27.03 - Thu 28.03.13

How do we, urban animals of the 21st century, relate to ‘other animals’? German choreographer Martin Nachbar aims to make our relationships with animals transparent through dance. The performance imitates animals in their habitat and in the habitat of contemporary dance (the theatre) and examines the possibilities of moving, feeling and thinking like animals.

Fri 23.11 - Sat 24.11.12

In Mette Ingvartsen's new creation both human and non-human performers appear on stage. Things fly through the air and create a constantly changing landscape.  A whirlwind of images roars past, sometimes with catastrophic effects. A vibrant landscape of dead things coming alive.

Fri 20.04 - Sat 21.04.12

Kate McIntosh is already known for performances such as Dark Matter and Hair from the Throat, evidence of a rich, somewhat bizarre imagination and superior craftsmanship. In Untried Untested,
she once again goes hard at it. The performers test various materials
and each other and so find themselves in situations that are often
funny, frequently unexpected and sometimes downright dangerous.

Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker cooperated with the artists Ann Veronica Janssens and Michel François. Three artists who return to their sources and at the same time speak of our chaotic, transforming world. An impressive and radical performance.
