Two female bodies entwine until they become only one. Or three? Or… none? Where does a body actually begin? A clear question resounds in this duet that both refers to the tropes of the genre but also transcends them. What does it mean nowadays to be two together?

Achterland (1990) is a pivotal production in Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s oeuvre. It was the first time that the choreographer created dance material specifically for men and that she gave musicians a central role on the stage. To the tones of Györgi Ligeti and Eugène Ysaÿe, the minimalism and femininity of her earlier work made room for an ambiguous no man’s land that blurred boundaries and signs. A reprisal to look forward to!

In a world where financial markets, social networks algorithms, and automated warfare infrastructures take decisions in place of human beings, Trials of Money turns the theatre into a court of justice which does not yet exist: the Special Tribunal for Semi-Human Persons. For this first case, artist-in-residence Christophe Meierhans ánd the members of the court will call Money to answer for what has taken place under its governance.

Radouan Mriziga explores polyrhythm, a bass rhythm in African music. By looking for the social equivalent of this unusual harmony, this exercise for two dancers reminds us of the necessity and value of difference in the creative process.

Plants, cups, books, chairs, lamps – these were the possessions bankers rescued from their Wall Street offices after the stock market crash. They are now the basis for a duet that questions the connection between object, art market, and crisis. Youness Atbane and Youness Aboulakoul explore the logic of language, movement and images.
