In Nebula, Vania Vaneau approaches the relationship between human bodies and nature as a meeting of force fields in a post-apocalyptic context. Nebula is a crossing into the unknown and a moment of eclipse that offers a glimpse at other possible worlds.

Les enfants terribles

Les enfants terribles
Les enfants terribles

Jean Cocteau's masterpiece Les enfants terribles tells the story of Paul and his sister Elisabeth, who nauseatingly challenge each other to with games. In her version, Phia Ménard works with composer Philip Glass' adaptation of the novel. She draws a parallel between the body of an adolescent and that of an elder: both sometimes experience a feeling of isolation, of being cut off from society.

Carte Noire Nommée Désir

Carte Noire Nommée Désir starts with a funny story about colour and colonialism. That marks the beginning of a poetic journey on stage by a group of eight performers. They appropriate their own history as black women, in a country that has yet to decolonise its own imagination.

Immemorial

Each object hides a story and keeps it alive. But what does the immediate presence of that object, which is devoid of meaning and past, mean? In this performance-installation, Azade Shahmiri creates new relationships between objects. In this way she develops her own form of storytelling with objects that move through time and connect us.

The Making of Berlin
The Making of Berlin

The Making of Berlin is the final part of BERLIN's cycle of cities. With live music on stage - and Opera Ballet Vlaanderen’s orchestra on film - BERLIN takes on an exceptional story in documentary style. The performance focuses on an unfinished chapter in the life of an old Berliner - with Wagner's Götterdämmerung in a crucial role and Klara manager and Pompidou inspiration Chantal Pattyn in a supporting role.
