For this ambitious group choreography, Daniel Linehan is delving into Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du Printemps. He has opted to stage the beautiful version for two pianos, which will be performed live by Jean-Luc Plouvier (from Ictus) and Alain Franco. You will be seated near the thirteen dancers and the pianists – a proximity that results in a collective shared energy.

Mette Ingvartsen aims to explore and expose the fact that pornography has rooted itself deep within our society. In the fourth instalment of her Red Pieces cycle, she mixes physical actions with narrative passages, presenting you with a veritable mental choreography. She again holds up her magnifying glass to sexuality – resulting in an extraordinarily intense production.

Ligia Lewis turns to the colour red – in between love and rage – while asking questions about (re)presentation, abstraction, and the limits of signification. Three performers push their bodies against the boundaries of the theatre while simultaneously showing their humble relationship with it. Exhaustion reaches increasingly high levels on a journey to the stage's essential matter: black. Lewis was awarded the prestigious Bessie award for minor matter.
