Fri 31.03 - Sat 01.04.17

With In Many Hands, McIntosh dives into a tactile and multi-sensory world. She invites you to test, touch, listen and smell. She turns her back on the stage and opts for a series of sensory ‘situations’ which give you free rein to experiment. Take your time to explore and follow your nose!

In her successful production All Ears, Kate McIntosh transforms the stage into a laboratory and recording studio. In the silence between the sound recordings, she asks you questions: who are we when we are alone, and what are we missing in our urge for self-actualization? With disarming flair and presence, she blends theatre, variety, stand-up comedy, science and philosophy.

If it is true that money rules the world, then perhaps time has come for it to account for its acts. It is therefore not in an attempt to bribe a magistrate that Christophe Meierhans is bringing money to court, but on the contrary, in order to offer it a fair trial: Is money itself the culprit for having brought the world to the catastrophic state it is in now, or has it rather been employed to the design of ill-intentionned individuals?

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.

Fri 07.10 - Sat 08.10.16

A group of twelve performers explores the mystery of pleasure. In a long, sensual movement bodies touch, test, and lose their borders. They vibrate, entering into contact and  composition with their environment, forming unexpected constellations. Mette Ingvartsen looks seven concepts of pleasure straight in the eye.

Mette Ingvartsen explores the way in which we deal with our bodies and sexuality today. She leads you through videos, performances, books, films, movements, text and image and thus brings history back to life.

Burrows and Fargion offer a chance to see their 2014 Venice Biennale piece Body Not Fit For Purpose. It is an attempt to reconcile personal politics with the difficulty of saying anything of consequence in a dance performance, all the while revealing the strange permeability of dance to any message that it meets.

Tue 26.01 - Tue 10.05.16

Guided by headphones and holding a flashlight to illuminate the darkness of a big, empty and dormant theatre, you're cast as an 'extra' in what appears to be a dream-like rehearsal of powerlessness.

Julian Hetzel explores a radical alternative use of money earmarked for culture. Starting point is the € 2.000 gift he received to develop a project. He donates that entire budget to a starving child in Africa. By transferring 1 euro each day, he effectively turns the gift into a ‘2000-day intercontinental performance’.

The Estonian artist Maike Lond reports on her attempts to cooperate financially with the private sector. She tried in every way possible: with standard sponsor deals, as an employee, in public presentations, live debates on Estonian television etc. Her (rather romantic) goal was to become financially independent from curators and subsidising bodies.
