On stage: two adults and a child, unrehearsed, invited anew for every show. The child, on headphones, seems to be in charge. The adults copy the movements of children they see on screens around them. This puppet-like dance illustrates the stories, songs and dreams selected and whispered by the voices of yet more children as useful examples of vulnerability or surprise. Who are these kids?

Two female, identical performers move through the theatre space. The scene evokes the 'Tropical Bungalow', a dwelling installed by the colonial in Congo. SPIRIT CAPITAL transforms the stage into a ritualised place and invites you on a spatial and mental journey where historically oppressed bodies can shed the chains of history and liberate themselves through movement, words, sounds, music and outward transformations.

For this ‘remake’ of Iemand van ons (2005), Tristero has mobilized a seasoned cast with plenty of life experience. Mark Verstraete, Bob De Moor, Kristin Arras, Sam Bogaerts, Mieke Verdin and Els Olaerts all get into a big bed together and talk about politics, love and life. With a great sense of humour, they ask one another personal questions, listen, toss and turn on the bed, and reveal their inner selves.

In The Dancing Public, Ingvartsen explores ecstatic movement at social gatherings in the aftermath of a pandemic. Her solo blows up the solitary confinement of 2020 with a mix of unstoppable movements, incessant music, words and chants in infernal tempos and rhythms. The Dancing Public is a dance party, a spoken word concert and an expression of physical madness to the point of exhaustion. What is this extreme need for movement that we feel in our bodies today? Are we ready to taste life to the full again?

In the coming years, Jan Decorte and Sigrid Vinks will focus on collaborating with young performers. BLOOD LTD by Bloet is a project with the density of a black hole. All themes, visions, opinions, dogmas and manifestos are swallowed up and evolve from a meaningless zero to a meaningful chaos. Jan Decorte and Sigrid Vinks, together with Ika Schwander and Oumar Dicko, create their own theatre language: light, whispering and fleeting.

Fri 10.12 - Sat 11.12.21

Tactile Talk invites you into a landscape of foam rocks, where performers guide you through a game. Place a rock, make eye contact, follow, take charge, stand back and watch the image emerge. Tactile Talk is a meeting, a silent conversation about making contact, setting boundaries, noticing what moves us and what moves between us. It is a visual game, and a social choreography in which you investigate distance and proximity.
