Wed 07.02 - Fri 09.02.18

Benoît Lachambre again asks you to listen to your senses and genuinely to experience the consciousness of your body. Borders between dance and movement gradually blur when a glance, a movement, or the touch of someone in the audience continues to resonate in the choreography.

THE THING is an automated and hybrid form consisting of four episodes, in between performance, workshop, and journey. The only ones present are you, a group of 8 to 12 people who open a suitcase and follow a wild mix of different triggers as a guide. Make a leap of faith!

In the performance Crazy But True, children between the ages of eight and eleven form a panel of experts. A text is whispered to them via headsets. They repeat what they hear, and thus present a growing list of extraordinary facts.

Fri 31.03 - Sat 01.04.17

Trajal Harrell explores a moment in dance history when female artists presented performances on the boundary between entertainment, erotic dancing, and early experiments in modern dance. CAEN AMOUR is structured as a hoochie coochie show. With a seductive performance, scantily dressed ‘hoochies’ lure you around to the backstage area, to reveal the festivities on the ‘coochie’ side.

In this piece for three dancers, Ola Maciejewska draws her inspiration from Loïe Fuller, one of the pioneers of modern dance and performance art. She explores the relationship in the arts between human beings and physical matter by creating movement in large pieces of fabric. She plays with the confluence of bodies and objects and the battle that these wage.

With a year’s production of her own wool and two performers, Orla Barry addresses our complex relationship with nature.

Charlemagne Palestine is unleashing his strumming technique on the Bösendorfer Imperial: a piano that covers eight complete octaves. His instrument looks like a sculpted altar made of cuddly toys. He elevates these to divine creatures or shamanistic totems that are always close by.

Sun 26.03.17

SSSSSSSSSSSS is a solo about survival instincts based on Butoh techniques, performed in the public space. Initially, Misevičiūtė looks like one of those street artists who pretend to be statues, but the meticulous movements of her living sculpture gradually evolve into a choreography.

Hedwig Houben introduces three plaster characters: The Made, The Being and The Imitator. How do they relate to each other? How much do authenticity and originality really matter? Don’t we all learn through copying others?

In 2012 Karthik Pandian and Andros Zins-Browne visited the Atlas Film Studios in Morocco. They rented a group of camels, which they tried to coax into dancing in amongst the old film sets.
