Diederik Peeters adopts the role of an illusionist, but quickly gets lost in his own illusions. With optical tricks from the 19th century, he breathes life into his own shadow and conjures the ghosts of the future. In a kind of visual delirium, echoes of Méliès or Houdini clash with the 22nd century. Are the dead alive here, and does the future simply occur in the present?

In the coming years, Jan Decorte and Sigrid Vinks will focus on collaborating with young performers. BLOOD LTD by Bloet is a project with the density of a black hole. All themes, visions, opinions, dogmas and manifestos are swallowed up and evolve from a meaningless zero to a meaningful chaos. Jan Decorte and Sigrid Vinks, together with Ika Schwander and Oumar Dicko, create their own theatre language: light, whispering and fleeting.

For this performance, choreographer Jérôme Bel asked actress Jolente de Keersmaeker not to play any of her usual roles from the theatre repertoire but to perform pieces from modern dance. Yet Dance for an Actress is not just a dance performance. As Jolente de Keermaeker still has some way to being a professional dancer, she throws all the usual formality of dance overboard. Expect an evening as dancing as it is theatrical on the cutting edge of movement and words, of body and imagination.

Tine Van Aerschot's new performance is a cross between a Catholic worship service, a political party conference, a Tupperware evening and an occult celebration of the winter solstice. On stage are actresses Lois Lumonga Brochez, Aurelie Di Marino and Mira Brysinck – they play God, Devil and Narrator. The audience also plays a role: everyone gets to sing, pray and incant.

How to live without putting a bullet through your head before you turn fifty? Three companies are making the same number of performances about the person and work of the American cult author David Foster Wallace. The starting point is the author's biography, his addiction, genius, insecurity, depression and hyper-consciousness. The first part, DAVID of hoe we ons bedacht hebben (DAVID or how we imagined ourselves), explores how to live a meaningful life, a life that is connected to others and to the world.

A rudimentary living room with IKEA furniture turns out to be a hotbed of terrible pain and suffering. This five-hour performance by two actors and a pianist is based on real statistics and court cases related to domestic violence. Without needing dialogue, Markus Öhrn dissects the banality and brutality of domestic violence.

Kate McIntosh's latest performance throws the work of several writers, composers and performers into the mix. Surrender to exhilarating polyrhythmic beats and the raw energy of layered voices. To Speak Light Pours Out is an invitation to enjoy the sharp energies of positive disruption and new possibilities. A shout-out to the lust for transformation, resistance and new forms of being!

Forces of Nature follows a movement of an articulate and complex organism composed of five persons with different energies and ideas. Their desires might not be the same, but they have a common goal: the construction of a shared physical and imaginary space.

Tibaldus has dived into Madmen & Specialists, a text by the Nigerian Nobel Prize winner Wole Soyinka. While a son works with complete conviction for a fascist system, his father has lost all faith in every system. Expect Tibaldus' most disconcerting performance so far.

Gravity, inertia, resistance, momentum, action, and reaction. These are the five fundamental mechanical principles of movement we must control in order to walk and dance. Forces of Nature follows the movements of a complex organism that is constituted of five dancers, each with their own energy and ideas. From their negotiations and questions flows a score.

People with physical disabilities are often more associated with stationariness than with movement. In Every Body Electric, Doris Uhlich refutes this idea with vitality and vibrancy. What other possibilities open up when wheelchairs, prostheses and crutches are not perceived as obstacles but as powerful extensions of the body? You can expect a fascinating dialogue between the human and the mechanical in which very personal dance styles vary from explosive to gently poetic.

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.

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.
