In CASCADE, Meg Stuart and seven dancers reset the clock, and challenge reality to reconfigure itself. Balancing on the edge of a world that is rapidly disappearing, they plunge their bodies into another dimension. CASCADE is an unconditional surrender to what we do not know about the unknown other. Step into this free fall to the crumbling of time!

This dance solo by Betty Tchomanga evolves around the mythological figure of Mami Wata (‘Mammy Water’). She is a goddess of water, a figure from the depths of night, infused with power and sexuality. This stranded mermaid faces the people watching her. This mermaid jumps. Jumps to resist. Jumps to reach. Jumps to become. Jumps to die. Jumps to exist.

Is dance a language? And if so, how does it speak? In In Other Words, Ingrid Berger Myhre explores the compatibility between dance and language. With the stage as an empty page, the choreographic writing unfolds as a physical discourse with its own syntax, grammar and vocabulary. With ingenuity and charm, Myhre presents a relativizing take on dance.

Fri 25.06 - Sat 26.06.21

Based on interviews with dancers from the Arab world,Turning Point questions the misunderstandings, ambiguities, stereotypes, metaphors, metamorphoses, fantasies, prejudices and imaginations linked to perceptions of dance in this region. Through movement rooted in the pelvis, manipulation of costume elements, and live electro-percussive music, Nancy Naous questions the spectator's gaze and challenges images rooted in our collective imagination.
