What would hell look like today? The 500th anniversary of the death of Hieronymus Bosch, made Vasco Mendonça, Kris Verdonck and Dimitri Verhulst think. They quickly arrived at the beaches of Lampedusa: a place where while tourists were sunbathing refugees were washed up on the beach. The false paradise of the resorts and the Boschian hell on earth seamlessly flow into each other.

Fri 14.10.16

Three singers/performers create a succession of intriguing tableaux vivants. Ivo Dimchev’s stream of consciousness simultaneously appears on the rear wall. He harnesses the power of the voice, extreme theatricality and a whole arsenal of temperament, and goes in search of what opera is and can be.

For his Concertos, the born performer Ivo Dimchev always invites a different musician for a voice improvisation in the form of a concert. At the Kaaitheater, he performs alongside the composer and pianist Lea Petra, who has been highly praised for her tango transcriptions for piano.

Cinemaximiliaan is a cinema for people on the move. The project started spontaneously in the refugee camp in the Maximilian Park, where daily film screenings provided a welcome distraction. The volunteers of Cinemaximiliaan have encountered dozens of newcomers with artistic talent. This evening features work by three of these people.

Zonder Bloed
Wed 13.04 - Fri 15.04.16

In the midst of a brutal act of revenge, a boy and a girl exchange looks. Unwittingly, and without saying a word, their lives become inextricably linked. Inne Goris has adapted Alessandro Baricco's novel about the impact of war and the shared destiny of perpetrator and victim. This universal tale of revenge and grief explicitly poses the question: is reconciliation possible?

BACH / PASSION / JOHANNES
BACH / PASSION / JOHANNES
Fri 09.10 - Sat 10.10.15

Choreographer Laurent Chétouane tackles an iconic work: Bach’s St John Passion. He is not interested in a perfect execution of the music and doesn’t allow his dancers to ‘portray’ the Passion. Will Bach still move you without the security of a set choreography, trained singers and only seven instruments? What happens when Bach’s music is desecrated?

Fri 20.03.15

PERFORMATIK 2015 DOUBLE BILL - Body Not Fit For Purpose is the first overtly political work of choreographer Jonathan Burrows and musician Matteo Fargion. Its starting point is the uselessness of dancing to express anything of any real concern and at the same time the inherent, gloriously foolish radicality of the attempt. With sequenza, artist Manon de Boer and violinist and composer George van Dam present a programme of live performances and films around four compositions for solo violin

The Pyre

The Pyre
Fri 13.12 - Sat 14.12.13

The performances and installations by Gisèle Vienne shift the boundaries between appearance and reality and so open ‘another’ world. In The Pyre it consists of a dancer and a boy, in a metropolis at night. Abstract dance, tableau vivant and theatrical narration to a fascinating soundscape.
