Tibaldus has dived into Madmen & Specialists, a text by the Nigerian Nobel Prize winner Wole Soyinka. While a son works with complete conviction for a fascist system, his father has lost all faith in every system. Expect Tibaldus' most disconcerting performance so far.

Rabot 4-358 is a documentary performance about the social residential towers of Ghent’s Rabot district and the workshop that existed there for 26 months. This workshop started as a personal initiative of Simon Allemeersch and Wannes Degelin. The performance tells their workshop's story. How come these buildings once had a very good reputation? Who came up with their absurd form? And why are the towers actually being demolished? A story from the inside about housing, economy, poverty and personal fictions.

‘How are you now?’ It is with this question that Rabot 2 begins. In 2010, Simon Allemeersch installed his workshop in one of the dilapidated social housing blocks in the Rabot neighbourhood in Ghent. Now he has made Rabot 2, in which he looks up the people he collaborated with at the time. Starting from individual testimonials, he zooms out to a bigger story about private and public wealth.

In 1981, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel performed their legendary charity concert in Central Park, New York: a musical feast of friendship and solidarity. the two singers now avoid one another as much as possible. More even: they had already split at the time of that concert. Simon, Garfunkel, My Sister and Me is the ultimate re-enactment of the concert, a show about rivalry in all its forms.

When the 21-year-old Etouri undergoes nose surgery, she unexpectedly holds up a mirror to her mother Christine and grandmother Christa. Métisse is a tragi-comic, musical production about the existential question of ‘half-blood children’ since the 1960s. The perspectives of three generations of women, each with darker skin than the last, coalesce and reveal a piece of the hidden past and present.

No more gender inequality according to de KOE and mugmetdegoudentand. The companies were inspired by Goethe's novel Die Wahlverwandtschaften, set up as an amorous experiment in the style of Temptation Island. Do the characters fall prey to their passions and drives, the so-called laws of nature? Or does reason prevail? Even then, the ending was catastrophic.
