In the performance Crazy But True, children between the ages of eight and eleven form a panel of experts. A text is whispered to them via headsets. They repeat what they hear, and thus present a growing list of extraordinary facts.

Five figures form a portrait of humanity in the insane twentieth century, awaiting the inevitable catastrophe. Wars, simmering conflicts, terrorism, ecological disasters… an ever-greater number of possible endings present themselves. Despite the shock, they continue to talk, perform, and play music.

Tue 17.10 - Wed 18.10.17

After a series of solos, Volmir Cordeiro has created his first work for four dancers. He has created a dance that aims to express the physical movement and behaviour of the eye. The interior, the hidden and even the pre-human and cannibalistic is exposed in this intense, almost obsessive inquiry into dance, and into the ineffable itself.

Mette Edvardsen is drastically expanding the classical stage. She is performing We to be at three locations simultaneously: in the book from which she reads aloud, on the empty stage as a projection screen of your imagination, and in the ether as a live radio broadcast.

Meyoucycle sounds like ‘musical’ pronounced in a strange accent. Along with composer Chris Peck and four Ictus musicians, Bauer blends together all the ingredients for a musical, producing a completely new, hybrid genre. The piece is about you and me and everything in between. That’s right, a me-you cycle.

Sarah Vanhee écrit un film policier avec sept détenus – tous inculpés de meurtre. L’intrigue s’inspire de leurs propres expériences, idées et rêves, alors qu’il est question de motifs, d’incarcération et de réintégration. À vous de deviner s’ils se servent de la fiction pour confirmer, défendre, modifier ou échapper à leur situation personnelle.

Starting with rituals and celebrations – from the archaic to the contemporary – Gisèle Vienne brings a group of 15 youngsters together who dance to a DJ set by Peter Rehberg.
