Tibaldus has dived into Madmen & Specialists, a text by the Nigerian Nobel Prize winner Wole Soyinka. While a son works with complete conviction for a fascist system, his father has lost all faith in every system. Expect Tibaldus' most disconcerting performance so far.
After The Six Brandenburg Concerto, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker continues her journey with Bach in dialogue with these variations. Along with pianist Pavel Kolesnikov she brings The Goldberg Variations, BWV 988, a solo performance danced by De Keersmaeker herself. Here too, the musical score forms a blueprint for the choreography.
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.
Drumming (1998) is returning to Brussels! It’s one of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s most iconic choreographies, written to the eponymous, minimalistic percussion score by Steve Reich. A wave of pure dance and pure sound, a vortex of vital energy.
