For Chesterfield, Alix Eynaudi and her team were inspired by the collection of the Austrian Museum of Folk Life and Folk Art. Using poetry as a choreographic device, Chesterfield presents a maze of signs and materials. It is a patchwork of movement, sound, bodies, books, fabrics, and light, woven with leather thread… and all composed to a sensual cadence.

Welcome to Kakfontein, where the kingdom lies in ruins. In The Last King of Kakfontein, Boyzie Cekwana reacts to the rise of populist rulers in his native South Africa and in the rest of the world. This is a reflection on a world in flux, that is being destroyed by a dearth of ideas.

How does dance think through Eleanor Bauer and how does Eleanor Bauer think through dance? In this solo, the American choreographer and performer Eleanor Bauer embraces the particularity of dance-thought as synthetic, complex, change-oriented, fantastical, and multi-faceted. She works with the frictions, collisions, translations, love affairs and gaps between dance and language.

This first part – in blue – of Ligia Lewis’ triptych that deals with affect and embodiment, as well as race and representation, is defined entirely by the language of sadness. She meticulously creates a hybrid body that is in constant flux. Towards the end, the body transforms into nothing more than a mouth and an unrelenting scream. Through this unstable figure, Lewis explores questions of race, authorship, gender, and grief.

Behalf is a danced dialogue between the Thai dancer Pichet Klunchun and the Taiwanese dancer Chen Wu-kang. This creation began as a series of conversations about their cultural backgrounds and the patriarchal social structures in both Thailand and Taiwan. A series of dance solos results in a mutual dialogue, which then moves on to involve a local musician and the audience.
