According to an old Spanish folk tradition, villagers used to cry directly into the cloudy sky to ward off an approaching storm. With a canticle, they tried to scare away lightning and turn hail into raindrops. A nublo! This performance without players places you in the eye of the storm and in the middle of an intense sensory experience, in a landscape that is halfway between the scenography of an opera and a cloudy valley, between geology and an amusement park. The characters you meet there are neither people nor animals, neither monsters nor gods, but rather natural phenomena.

Wed 23.06 - Thu 24.06.21

Untitled 14 KM explores how the art world currently approaches the concept of contemporary art in its relation with identity, and specifically Arab identity. Youness Atbane examines this through an enacted dialogue between fictional characters: an Arab-Andalusian poet, a director of the museum of contemporary art, a curator, and an artist. These characters are trying to set up an exhibition that analyzes the concept of modernism.

Does gender have a voice? Using drag, vogueing, striptease, YouTube tutorials as well as the triadic ballet by Oskar Schlemmer, seven bodies and many more objects try out new constellations, like surrealist ready-mades. With a great sense of irony, Escape Act presents hyper-stereotyped gender identities, only to deconstruct them completely.

While many creators praise the empty stage as the central place for fantasy, in Physics and Phantasma it becomes compulsive and traumatic. The vacuum must at all costs by filled with something! To this end, Iggy Lond Malmborg takes you on a journey to random and dark corners of your imagination: the place where this solo takes shape.

Thu 05.12 - Fri 06.12.19

During a meditative crying marathon that lasts almost an hour, two futuristic female characters question the mechanisms that turn personal emotions into political phenomena. In a choreography that uses video and large sheets of paper – simultaneously protest signs and drying laundry – their tears of weakness become an act of political power.
