Jan Decorte is leaving the classics behind, but not the great truths and mysteries that they contain. In Jan Paternoster and Dries Van Dijck of Black Box Revelation – and all the uncompromising vehemence that they bring to the piece – Decorte and Sigrid Vinks have found their ideal musical partners in crime. The gentlemen created a brand-new soundtrack especially for Stand Down.

In his latest performance, Benjamin Vandewalle is again accompanying you into the city. He takes the lead in a series of purposeful actions: some are banal, while others are completely unconventional. You leave as a group of individuals and gradually transform into one collective body.

The result is an intimate, explosive solo. Discover a synthesis of his search for a hitherto undiscovered culture!

In Kilmore Quay, the perspective of the fish is the only one that matters. Times were good. There was plenty of money and plenty of work – until the European fisheries quotas arrived on their shores. Against the backdrop of an Irish fishing village, Els Dietvorst has filmed the second part of her triptych about the relationship between humans and nature.

Meg Stuart and visual artist Jompet Kuswidananto went on an artistic voyage of discovery across contemporary Indonesia. Imaginary and invisible spaces – and the voices that resound within them – are the starting point for an adventurous exploration into uncharted territory.

Wed 21.02 - Thu 22.02.18

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?

Wed 18.04 - Thu 19.04.18

Trial of Money does what it promises: to turn the theatre into a courtroom in which the financial system is put on trial. If ‘money rules the world’, can we not call it to account for how it uses this position of power? Consider this your invitation to become a jury member.
