You can only observe changes with hindsight. Indeed, the present and the past are diametrically opposed: we realize that we have arrived somewhere, but we don’t know how we got there. That is precisely what My Only Memory is: a retrospective, knowing that nothing will ever be the same.

Ivo Dimchev is presenting a live and danced version of his first studio album, Sculptures. His sense of musicality and exceptional voice have always been central to his performances, but over the last two years he has definitively chosen the path of music. His breath-taking voice brings the dark poetry of his texts to the fore and ensures a terrifying and deeply moving experience.

Advertising, film, magazines, the internet: we are constantly surrounded by images of sexualized bodies that display the intimate and the erogenous. In to come (extended) 15 performers explore the relationship between individual sexual freedom and sexuality as a collective experience.

August 2016, a spring fair somewhere in Kinshasa. The young choreographer Pepe Elmas Naswa is watching an impressive snake dance, performed by a group of street kids and gang members.

How does dance think through Eleanor Bauer and how does Eleanor Bauer think through dance? In this solo, the American choreographer and performer Eleanor Bauer embraces the particularity of dance-thought as synthetic, complex, change-oriented, fantastical, and multi-faceted. She works with the frictions, collisions, translations, love affairs and gaps between dance and language.

Fri 25.01 - Sat 26.01.19

This first part – in blue – of Ligia Lewis’ triptych that deals with affect and embodiment, as well as race and representation, is defined entirely by the language of sadness. She meticulously creates a hybrid body that is in constant flux. Towards the end, the body transforms into nothing more than a mouth and an unrelenting scream. Through this unstable figure, Lewis explores questions of race, authorship, gender, and grief.

Which movements or fragments of movements does a dancer remember after years of training and performance experience? In the first part of this solo for dancer Bahar Temiz, Vanrunxt explores the power and the possible significance of movement through memory. In the second part, Bahar fights a decelerated ‘disco-drone’: a scene in one flash of light that does not stop.

Laure Prouvost’s first work for the main stage is rooted in her film Dit Learn, in which a quick succession of everyday objects, images and texts encourages you to imbue everything with new meaning. You can expect an ‘expanded cinema experience’ in which recorded and live images duplicate the actions in the theatre – dance, music, sound, projection.

Now that bodies are occupying more and more museums, choreographer and philosopher Noé Soulier is presenting an opposite movement: what if instead of bodies, the artworks themselves adapted to a new space? Performing Art presents twenty pieces from the collection of the Centre Pompidou. You do not see them as you walk through a museum, but from your seat in the theatre.

We would like to invite you to our New Work, which does not yet exist. It is still lurking somewhere in an invisible, intimate place, yet to be made, and is still carefully looking for words to present itself to you.

Can dance be a tool to imagine the future? Can you make science fiction with choreography?  Starting from the abstract drawings of Valery Pavlovich Lamakh, artist-in-residence Michiel Vandevelde has created an alienating choreography that offers you a glimpse of a possible future. Whether this future looks utopic or dystopic depends on how you look at it.
