Let's Talk (about Dance)

Would you like to discuss the dance performances you have seen in an informal setting? Are you curious about the experiences of others or would you like to share your experiences? Welcome to LET’S TALK (ABOUT DANCE)! A moderator provides a forum for you and a small group of audience members to share your perspective on dance. What have seen and what did it mean to you?

‘It is incredible how your experience of the performance changes completely because of what somebody else says about it. Or how you start seeing or appreciating elements that you hadn’t really noticed before.’

Thu 03.10 - Sat 05.10.19

Mette Ingvartsen creates a universe in which people, technology and organic matter coexist to create an abstract set of movements. Pressing questions about our present moment form the leitmotif for the performance. Through light, shadow and reflection, the nine dancers open an enchanting landscape that you can enter as a viewer.

Almost ten years after Zeitung (2008), Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Alain Franco used the building blocks of that production to make a new one: Zeitigung. Against the backdrop of a changing world and channelled through the bodies of eight young dancers, they updated their own work. Zeitigung is returning to the Kaaitheater stage, where it premièred in 2017.

Thu 20.02 - Fri 21.02.20

On a stage covered with a thick layer of earth and bathed in light stand fourteen dancers – all different in age and dance background. Movements flow from one body to the next, gradually building to a wild climax. The result is a tactile experience that shares loneliness with fiction: how is it that you can be alone even when you’re in a group?

Wed 25.03 - Sat 28.03.20

For centuries, dancers have been counting their steps to 4, 6 or 8. But what if dancers were to count to infinity? Boris Charmatz: ‘I have always hated counting while dancing. In this piece, we count, speak and sing not only so that we can dance, but first and foremost, so that our minds can wander even more.’ In a world that is being increasingly enslaved by algorithms, Charmatz offers a moment of infinity.

Fri 08.05 - Mon 11.05.20

Tafukt/The Sun/Athena is a dance solo and the first part of a trilogy focused on epistemologies and mythologies of the Tamazigh – the indigenous population of Northern Africa. How can we challenge the current canon? Can performance function as a tool of resistance? Radouan Mriziga seeks to create a space for reflections on the past in order to strive for a more inclusive future.
