In this danced dialogue, Thai dancer Pichet Klunchun and Taiwanese dancer Chen Wu-kang reveal themselves to one another and to the audience. With compact portraits of pure movement, they alternately treat themes such as fatherhood, cultural heritage, and self-reliance. In the meantime, percussionist Lazara Rosell Albear adds a third voice.

In the growing series Simple as ABC, Thomas Bellinck focuses on the Western migration management machine. This third instalment takes you to an imagined museum where there are only voices. You hear scraps of Arabic, English, Farsi, French, and Greek, gathered around the Mediterranean Sea. The absent narrators share their stories and thus sketch a many-voiced portrait of the contemporary hunt for humans.

Eleanor Bauer loves playing with the codes and concepts of contemporary dance. In New Joy, she confronts the post-truth age: this dataistic cyber-musical knocks straight through the boundaries of various registers. From body language and spoken language to computer language and back again, from emotional to artificial intelligence, from movement to sound. Along with composer Chris Peck, Bauer engages all of your senses in her search for meaning and hidden implications.

Thu 30.05 - Sat 01.06.19

Rimini Protokoll had a humanoid robot created that looks exactly like playwright Thomas Melle. This lifelike mechanical doppelganger takes the place of the human original onstage. But what happens to the original when the copy takes everything over? Are the copy and the original doomed to compete with one another or will they collaborate? And do we as viewers feel as much empathy for a human as for a machine?

This performance moves to the 2019-2020 season due to productional reasons.

We would like to invite you to our New Work, which does not yet exist. It is still lurking somewhere in an invisible, intimate place, yet to be made, and is still carefully looking for words to present itself to you.
