Inspired by baroque compositional patterns, Noé Soulier has created a piece for four dancers. Set to the forceful piano tones of Bach and Johan Jakob Froberger – composers who always attempted to create musical rhetoric – Soulier researches how we perceive and interpret movements.

What is happiness? In what dark and remote corners do we have to crawl individually and collectively to find it? Together with dancers from the EnKnapGroup, Pavol Liska and Kelly Copper have created a bizarre, painful and hilarious horror comedy about voracious expansion in the Wild West and all the violence that ensued as a result.

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.

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.

Thu 12.04 - Sun 15.04.18

Achterland (1990) is a pivotal production in Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s oeuvre. It was the first time that the choreographer created dance material specifically for men and that she gave musicians a central role on the stage. To the tones of Györgi Ligeti and Eugène Ysaÿe, the minimalism and femininity of her earlier work made room for an ambiguous no man’s land that blurred boundaries and signs. A reprisal to look forward to!

In 2017, Salva Sanchis and Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker adapted A Love Supreme with four young, male dancers. This exceptionally vital production was one of the highlights of the last season, and was promptly selected for the TheaterFestival. Join the dancers, and abandon yourself once again to Coltrane’s spiritual ode to divine love!

In My Dinner with André Damiaan De Schrijver and Peter Van den Eede sit down for a four-course meal. While one is a sober-minded humanist, the other holds forth about his extraordinary spiritual experiences. The result is a hilarious conversation about their conflicting personal philosophies, about life, and especially about the theatre. Don’t miss the 20th anniversary of this cult production!
