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.

Wed 15.02 - Thu 16.02.23

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.

Thu 16.02 - Sat 18.02.23

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.

Tue 20.12 - Thu 22.12.22

Netflix series and popular songs but also the constant renewal of our social media feeds: created as they are by a crossover between frivolous enjoyment and banal seduction. What would an ambient theatre performance look like? What happens when you magnify and amplify these ambient qualities and let them rage across the stage?

In seeking to disidentify the masculine, Gérald Kurdian met flamboyant individuals who seemingly were reinventing the political through the care of the intimate. In X!, Kurdian sketches a portrait of current militant cultures and creates a choral manifesto for a sensitive revolution.

Three performers spin around their axis for three quarters of an hour – a movement that in Sufi ceremonies is supposed to lead to a state of religious euphoria. In Miet Warlop's version, it becomes an experiment on the fine line between having and losing control.

Romance is an invitation to discover the recognition, repulsion and humor that is created when you allow someone else to be your voice. In an intimate setting, Lígia Soares makes us reflect on how we think as individuals within a group by using ordinary sentences to create connections between herself and audience members.

The performance is over, the lights come on. The audience begins to applaud. The dancer returns to the stage and greets the audience. What exactly happens at such a moment? To highlight this particular theatrical code, Latifa Laâbissi puts herself in the shoes of a paradoxical figure. In this end without end, which repeatedly performs a different variation of the same greeting, stories intertwine and memories emerge.

Sometime in the not-so-distant future, two friends meet in a forest. Michel, just back from two years of deep mindfulness in an ashram, have been keeping up with the news. Taylor hurries to tell him about his adventures with the 'Context and Modality Platform', a kind of political party that – as an out-of-control joke and against all odds – has ended up at the gates of power. Have Taylor and his friends managed to stay true to their ideals?
