Numerous playwrights who address climate change struggle to make us hear and see ideas such as dissolving the dividing lines between the human and the non-human. In this lecture, Prof Balestrini presents some methodologies.
With IT'S EXTRA, we invite you to a performance, but also to stay a little longer, to experience a little extra.
Luiz de Abreu, currently one of the sensations of the São Paulo Biennale, lets the young Brazilian dancer Calixto Neto perform his iconic piece O Samba de Criolo Doido. De Abreu created this piece in 2004, in a Brazil plagued by racist and homophobic violence. Dancing naked in silver glittery boots, all the cliches about the repertoire of Black Brazilian artists are exotically and erotically represented and de(con)structed.
If the moon could tell us what she sees on earth, how would we translate her words? And what if a cloud would come in between? Using the ‘weather report’ as a template for dramaturgy, the piece works with different media that do not seek to come together.
With TENDRESSE, FATSABBATS rounds off their triptych at the Kaaistudio's and makes room for collective care.
Josse De Pauw's lyrics come straight from the mouth of Junior, a Nigerian former soccer player who sees theatre as a chance to stop working in a factory. A spectrum of Dutch fluency, an exciting dynamic between author and actor.
Choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker's second and arguably most performed performance takes you to a new dimension. Minute variations allow initially perfectly synchronised movements gradually to slip and shift, creating a complex interplay of changing shapes and patterns.
In Fluisterbehang/Visite Guidée, Tristero uncovers the hidden stories stored in the walls of the Schaarbeek residence at number 80 Rue Gallait. But this show is just as much about all the other homes around the world. Because what is a house? When does the house become a home and is every home also a home?
An ongoing conversation between daughter and father about human knowledge and uncharted territories. The horizon, as a metaphor for what is unknown or misunderstood, appears not only in the distance but also within us; scattered throughout our bodies, lives and histories. This horizon is infinite, life is not.
There is a place that human knowledge can never reach. The horizon marks that boundary. But there lies an end point also in our body, psyche, biography and history. Things we know we will never know looks at the Horizon as an expanding, changing frontier and explores the connection between 'the unknown out there' and 'the unknown in here'. It will be an evening for talking about the things we know we will never know.
