During her 1980 stay in New York, in which she first rehearsed her celebrated Violin Phase to the music of Steve Reich, the only other recording playing in Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s studio was the Brandenburg Concertos by Bach. More than 35 years later, De Keersmaeker continues her work with this music.

Sat 19.01 - Sun 20.01.19

Five performers travel through the history of dance – and possibly into its future. Is it possible, today, to still believe in eternal values and universality? Things are built up only to fall down again, in much the same way that we long to constantly rediscover ourselves. In Built to Last (2012), Meg Stuart worked for the first time with existing classical music.

Wed 23.01 - Sat 26.01.19

As the world stands on the verge of collapse, a man and a woman exchange a razor-sharp dialogue based on a caustic text by Heiner Müller. Frank Vercruyssen from tg STAN and Cynthia Loemij from Rosas share the stage and explore the essence of the relationship between words and movement. Again at Kaaitheater after 20 years!

Cullberg Ballet

Fri 15.02 - Sat 16.02.19

A fluctuating constellation of bodies heaves incessantly. Be swept away by Figure a Sea: a sea of possibilities and a meditation about looking at music, at volatility, at synchronous and unexpected moments. The choreography for 21 dancers is both technically immaculate and distinctly minimalist. Dance icon Deborah Hay challenges the intelligence, beauty, and humour of the Cullberg dancers. The result is 60 minutes of sublime purity, beauty, and physicality.
