In Journal d'un usager de l'espace, you travel through the Kaaitheater building in a different way. Visible and invisible singers take you from one space to another, immersing you in an ever-changing sound bath. Journal d'un usager de l'espace is an immersion in the ordinary beauty of space, sound, architecture and movement.

In the 21st century, death is everywhere: new incurable diseases, rising suicide rates, the consequences of climate change. How do we relate to death? Dances of Death is a physically intense performance with seven dancers and one singer. Together they propose the physical potential of dancing as the path to redemption. How would a dance of death be danced today?

In The Goldberg Variations, dancers Oskar Stalpaert (Platform-K), Michiel Vandevelde, and Audrey Merilus get to work with Bach's compositions and Steve Paxton's choreography. They take a close look at forty years of development of all kinds of dance practices. How open, democratic and accessible is dance today? Which body images do we prefer, which do we prefer not to see? The music is performed live by accordionist Vincent van Amsterdam.
