Whether you want to call Magical and Elastic a musical, deconstructed musical or an anti-musical doesn't really matter. Music, choreography, images and language are dependent on each other. This performance is a space where you see to listen and listen to see. Expect a magical performance where a narrative emerges from an image, a choreography is created thanks to the music, and the music starts from the words…

How do you translate the intensity, complexity and physicality of a piece of music into dance? For her new creation Duet for Two String Trios, Claire Croizé teams up with the Goeyvaerts String Trio, looking for answers to these questions through two string trios by the contemporary composer Charles Wuorinen. Dancers Emmi Väisänen and Jason Respilieux offer their bodies as a counterweight to this auditory onslaught. Music and dance circle each other in a play that is as dynamic and changeable as the string trios themselves: never a piece-by-piece translation, always a dialogue.

Please note: this show has been cancelled to help contain the spread of the new coronavirus. 

In 1981, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel performed their legendary charity concert in Central Park, New York: a musical feast of friendship and solidarity. the two singers now avoid one another as much as possible. More even: they had already split at the time of that concert. Simon, Garfunkel, My Sister and Me is the ultimate re-enactment of the concert, a show about rivalry in all its forms.

Rain (2001) is one of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s most characteristic performances, set to Steve Reich’s Music for 18 Musicians. Seven women and three men allow themselves to be propelled by an unstoppable joined energy. They are connected by a lively network of breathing and speed, as well as the special comradery that forms when you are beyond fatigue. In 2016, Rain was reprised with a new cast, premièring at the Royal Circus.

Three performers spend three quarters of an hour turning around their own axis – a movement that in Sufi ceremonies is thought to lead to religious euphoria. In Miet Warlop’s version, it becomes an experiment on the fine line between maintaining and losing control. It is a combination of swirling dance, recital and concert. How can you find a balance between self-control and devotion?

For their first joint creation, dancer Femke and drummer Lander Gyselinck (STUFF.) decided to swap roles. Lander dances (musically), Femke plays music (dansant), until both become blurred and blend together. Their older brother Wannes, a dramaturg, keeps an eye on the whole work. It’s a family affair...

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.

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.
