Philosopher Bruno Latour and theatre maker Frédérique Aït-Touati reflect on the relationship between human beings and their environment. Can we change our perception of the earth? No longer from a great distance, like a blue marble flying through space… But from the inside out, from the wafer-thin outer layer of the globe on which all life, human activity and resources are concentrated?

Annie Dorsen takes you on a sublime journey through the digital infinity in the dark of an inflatable planetarium. A lone performer reads texts culled from comments on the internet. Gradually, fragments of narrative emerge from the online chatter. Settle down beside this digital campfire under a digital firmament, like a 21st-century explorer

Wed 13.03 - Thu 14.03.19

Laure Prouvost’s first work for the main stage is rooted in her film Dit Learn, in which a quick succession of everyday objects, images and texts encourages you to imbue everything with new meaning. You can expect an ‘expanded cinema experience’ in which recorded and live images duplicate the actions in the theatre – dance, music, sound, projection.

What happens on a fully booked airplane of people who do not know each other when it becomes clear that it is going to crash? Do the passengers become isolated within themselves or do they turn to one another for support? In Dying Together, you will take part in a physically performed thought experiment. A gradually changing constellation of people – and the physical relationships between them – creates a colourful pallet of possible relationships.

Now that bodies are occupying more and more museums, choreographer and philosopher Noé Soulier is presenting an opposite movement: what if instead of bodies, the artworks themselves adapted to a new space? Performing Art presents twenty pieces from the collection of the Centre Pompidou. You do not see them as you walk through a museum, but from your seat in the theatre.

We would like to invite you to our New Work, which does not yet exist. It is still lurking somewhere in an invisible, intimate place, yet to be made, and is still carefully looking for words to present itself to you.

Along with composer and performer Matteo Fargion, Mette Edvardsen is venturing into opera, a genre that they have both been wanting to tackle for a long time. The relationship between voice and music and between space and scale are important, but the duo has opted not to refer to images from opera literally. Instead, they are drawing lines with which they can shape an unknown horizon.
