Tue 24.01 - Thu 23.11.17

Since its première at the Kaaistudios, Radouan Mriziga’s first creation has caused a furore. His very characteristic dance style provokes confrontations between physicality and strict concepts, between the sensual and the rational. Using his own body as a measure, he constructs an architectural form, subtly playing with your expectations.

In 1983, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker firmly put her newly formed dance company Rosas on the international map with Rosas danst Rosas. Four dancers dance themselves, again and again. For this revival, an entirely new, young cast will dance Rosas danst Rosas.

Sat 17.06 - Sun 18.06.17

In 1993 Jolente De Keersmaeker and Damiaan De Schrijver, together with Julien Schoenaerts, created Gewoon Ingewikkeld, based on Einfach Kompliziert by Thomas Bernhard. It was inevitable that Bernhard would continue to be one of STAN’s fellow travellers. Now the theatre company presents three Bernhard adaptations as a trilogy: a true Bernhard marathon that is around six hours long.

Fri 09.06 - Sat 10.06.17

History is written by winners. Including all the lies, chance encounters, and accidents de parcours. With this realization in mind, Jan Lauwers and Needcompany travel through time by way of the family trees of all the members. After an international tour – and being selected for the TheatreFestival 2016 – The blind poet is returning to the place where it premiered: the Kaaitheater.

All Ears
Sat 28.01.17

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.

Fri 13.01 - Sat 14.01.17

Six performers and three musicians meet one another in a nightclub. Or is it an arena? In this unreliable, underground refuge, we hear thumping basses and playful jazz. UNTIL OUR HEARTS STOP was one of the absolute highlights of last season, and more than deserved its nomination for the Theaterfestival 2016.

Tue 20.12 - Thu 22.12.16

What happens when Shakespeare’s rhythmic and poetic visual language becomes dance? Golden Hours (As you like it) – an encounter between Brian Eno and Shakespeare – draws you into a mildly ironic world, where the characters speak a language that doesn’t need deciphering to be grasped, yet isn’t pantomime.

Beeldend kunstenaar Hans Op de Beeck en schrijver-speler Pieter De Buysser brengen voor honderste keer Book Burning. Hans maakt een object, Pieter schrijft zinnen en spreekt ze uit op de scène. Een object, een tekst, een speler: dat is alles wat nodig is voor dit kleinood dat hart én verstand weet te raken.

In Radical Light, a creation for four dancers, choreographer Salva Sanchis combines experience-related and formal dance. ‘Experience-related’ stands for the dances that we create spontaneously at a party or at home: instinctive but also socially determined. Formal dance, however, is what you see in dance performances, the movements are completely ‘composed’.

What Nature Says
Fri 09.12 - Sat 10.12.16

What is nature saying to us? Myriam Van Imschoot carried out research in a zoo, lay down beside a motorway with a trilling tuning fork, and discovered birds in the woods whose songs imitated chainsaws and ring tones. What Nature Says is a radiophonic performance that slowly calls into question your ideas about human beings, nature and machines.
