Thu 18.01 - Wed 24.01.18

Meg Stuart and visual artist Jompet Kuswidananto embark on a journey of artistic investigation through collective memories and implanted fictional traumas. Imaginary and invisible spaces – and the voices that make them resonate – are one of the starting points of an adventurous leap into unknown territories.

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.

Fri 09.03 - Sat 10.03.18

Based on the assumption that pornography permeates our society, Mette Ingvartsen seeks to question its mechanisms. She focuses on various characteristics of the pornographic: from its cruelty to its clinical precision and violence, but also its expressions of pleasure, excitement, and thrill. By mixing physical action with narrative descriptions, a speculative choreography is created.

Jonathan Burrows, dancer and choreographer. Matteo Fargion, musician and composer. Always the two of them… but not this time! They invite four local artists – Mette Edvardsen, Dounia Mahammed, Lili Rampre and Andros Zins-Browne – to address the subject of ‘the possibility and impossibility of community’. The ingredient? 72 clay objects created by the performers, group singing and Indian drone sounds on smartphones.

In this mini festival – conceived especially for the empty Kaaitheater hall – music resonates with a series of different disciplines. This time, they will start from the proposition that music is not just sound. Ictus is bringing together sound poetry, spoken word and modal music at the intersection of melody and rhythm.
