[this performance has been postponed] Choreography is writing. Based in this realization, Mette Edvardsen has taken a new step in the writing process that she has been developing over the past ten years. She does not consider dance primarily as a visual art, rather she experiences how it engages all the other senses, such as listening, feeling and imagining. In the new creation Livre d’images sans images, Edvardsen collects song lyrics and texts that you hear in various forms – live and recorded.

Imagine a tower of countless lamps and light sources. It comes to life buzzing, creaking and crackling to the rhythm of switching sounds. Named after the light designer Bruno Pocheron, BRUNO brings together series of dances oscillating between figuration and abstraction with three dancers trying on their movements as if they were clothes: every touch, every gesture, however fugitive, forever printed.

In 2016, Beyoncé unleashed her music video Hold Up on the world. It was remarkably similar to the 1997 video work Ever is Over All by Pipilotti Rist. In a dreamlike, associative performance, the young makers at buren playfully subvert the clichés that continue to dominate representations of women.

SPARE TIME WORK musically explores thoughts and ideas on (reproductive) labour and leisure. Drenched in different colour spheres, characters like Adult Hood and Young, Grown Woman and Office Worker produce a variety of (power)relations, economical desires and social realities.

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

Celestial Sorrow is Meg Stuart’s first collaboration with the Indonesian visual artist Jompet Kuswidananto. Based in collective memories and fictitious traumas, the duo create a world of light and movement that is inhabited by three performers and two musicians. The show premiered at the Kaaistudios in 2018 and is moving to the main stage of Kaaitheater for this reprise.
