SOMETHING (out of nothing)
SOMETHING (out of nothing)

The unrelenting logic of profit and technological development have reduced human beings to disposable objects. The next step is making our environment completely uninhabitable. The new production by Kris Verdonk explores our physical and psychological state of being in light of an imminent extinction. The dancers are often not more than shadows in a landscape of blow-up sculptures, cello-noise, and a robotic drum.

Simple as ABC #3: The Wild Hunt

In the growing series Simple as ABC, Thomas Bellinck focuses on the Western migration management machine. This third instalment takes you to an imagined museum where there are only voices. You hear scraps of Arabic, English, Farsi, French, and Greek, gathered around the Mediterranean Sea. The absent narrators share their stories and thus sketch a many-voiced portrait of the contemporary hunt for humans.

Anne Teresa and Jolente De Keersmaeker and 44 young dancers take you into the woods. Put on your walking boots for this durational performance that navigates around fragments of Midsummer Night's Dream and Johannes Kepler’s astronomical novella Somnium (1608). Turn your back on the black box and let the wood and the night sky define the stage.

Uncanny Valley

Rimini Protokoll had a humanoid robot created that looks exactly like playwright Thomas Melle. This lifelike mechanical doppelganger takes the place of the human original onstage. But what happens to the original when the copy takes everything over? Are the copy and the original doomed to compete with one another or will they collaborate? And do we as viewers feel as much empathy for a human as for a machine?

A group of women and men – builders, poets, and dreamers – meet every week at Decoratelier in Molenbeek. In this space, they build stories together, a secret garden full of wormholes to unsuspected worlds.

New Joy
New Joy

Eleanor Bauer loves playing with the codes and concepts of contemporary dance. In New Joy, she confronts the post-truth age: this dataistic cyber-musical knocks straight through the boundaries of various registers. From body language and spoken language to computer language and back again, from emotional to artificial intelligence, from movement to sound. Along with composer Chris Peck, Bauer engages all of your senses in her search for meaning and hidden implications.
