Along with composer and performer Matteo Fargion, Mette Edvardsen is venturing into opera, a genre that they have both been wanting to tackle for a long time. The relationship between voice and music and between space and scale are important, but the duo has opted not to refer to images from opera literally. Instead, they are drawing lines with which they can shape an unknown horizon.

The unrelenting logic of profit and technological development have reduced human beings to disposable objects. The next step is making our environment completely uninhabitable. The new production by Kris Verdonk explores our physical and psychological state of being in light of an imminent extinction. The dancers are often not more than shadows in a landscape of blow-up sculptures, cello-noise, and a robotic drum.

How can we say something about the future through the lens of the past? Michiel Vandevelde examines the recent history of western modern and contemporary dance, from Isadora Duncan to Anna Halprin. In five speculative acts about the past from the future, the present is inevitably reflected upon. This way, choreography becomes a form of science-fiction.
