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.

Mette Ingvartsen explores the way in which we deal with our bodies and sexuality today. She leads you through videos, performances, books, films, movements, text and image and thus brings history back to life.

A group of twelve performers explores the mystery of pleasure. In a long, sensual movement bodies touch, test, and lose their borders. They vibrate, entering into contact and  composition with their environment, forming unexpected constellations. Mette Ingvartsen looks seven concepts of pleasure straight in the eye.

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.

This curated Beckett evening presents a surprising mix of forms: a monologue by Johan Leysen; a video lecture by philosopher and mathematician Jean Paul Van Bendegem; and a performative scenography as a possible landscape for a Beckett text. Through this combination, Kris Verdonck explores a fascination that he shares with Beckett, namely technology and the increasing conflict between humans and machines.

In an attempt to create a new culture, Michiel Vandevelde has armed himself with music videos and advertisements. Dancer Bryana Fritz distils them in an intimate, explosive and at times Lynchian dance solo. Like an invisible presence, Vandevelde directs the light and sound.

Do playwrights – like sculptors and painters – have studios where they turn their ideas into material? Matthias de Koning, Damiaan De Schrijver and Peter Van den Eede construct the fourth wall, and subsequently demolish it again. Welcome to this laboratory of naturalism, realism and hyperrealism!

The ethical standards with which we treat animals have been the subject of considerable research. But are animals also capable of political action? Philosopher and animal theorist Fahim Amir tells surprising stories about the role of animals in the history of humankind.

In Rabih Mroué’s video The Pixelated Revolution, a Syrian man uses his telephone to film a sniper shooting him. Smartphones have an unmistakeable revolutionary and commercial potential, but where are the obstacles?

Just like Fellini made Roma – an ode to his city – Jan Fabre is celebrating his own complex, crazy country. He is doing so in the most appropriate language to capture the spirit of this slippery state: the language of the theatre and of images. With an international cast of performers and musicians, he goes in search of Belgian identity. Raymond van het Groenewoud has written a series of anthems, while author Johan de Boose wrote the text.

Across the span of a decade and a half, Boyzie Cekwana and Danya Hammoud have kept a nodding acknowledgement of each other’s trajectories and strategies for survival. Now they come together so they can stand, one next to the other, one on top of the other, turning, bending and entangling around each other. 'We come together so we can both reach down to the top of our boots and take out our bootlegged goods, our smuggled stories.'
