BARELY METHODICAL TROUPE – BROMANCE

Mixing personal chemistry and humour with skills in parkour, b-boying, tricking, hand-to-hand acrobatics, Cyr wheel and more, BROMANCE explores male companionship and its limits. The result is a world where handshakes become handstands and backslaps become backflips. jQuery(document).ready(function($){ $('.ult-carousel-3830534765b279561e3d23').slick({dots: true,autoplay: true,autoplaySpeed: 5000,speed: 1000,infinite: true,arrows: true,nextArrow: '',prevArrow: '',slidesToScroll:5,slidesToShow:5,swipe: true,draggable: true,touchMove: true,responsive: [ { breakpoint: 1025, settings:…

CIRQUE INEXTREMISTE – EXTRÊMITÉS

Extrêmités explores – in a precariously literal way – the balance of power between three malicious works in a builders’ yard. Committing acts of revenge, torment and torture, the protagonists leave each other stranded at great height, balancing on structures made only from scaffolding boards and propane gas bottles. Irreverent, hideously funny and excruciating to watch, Extrêmités goes…

BALLET NATIONAL DE MARSEILLE – EMIO GRECO | PIETER C. SCHOLTEN – CORPS DU BALLET

“Throwing your body into the fight”: this phrase from film-maker Pier Paolo Pasolini, a firm favourite with the choreographers Emio Greco and Pieter Scholten, is particularly appropriate for their first creation as directors of the Ballet National de Marseille. How can classical ballet be turned into a playground, or rather a battlefield, where the individual…

SIDI LARBI CHERKAOUI – BABEL

Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and Damien Jalet joined forces with visual artist Antony Gormley to create Babel(words), a dance performance that explores language and its relationship with nationhood, identity and religion. Taking the tale of 'The Tower of Babel' as its starting point, Gormley's 5 huge 3-dimensional frames hint at a nameless intersection in a faceless city…

Mime with noise, stand-up with no talking…

BALLET VLAANDEREN – WEST

Ballet Vlaanderen dances work by Merce Cunningham, Jonah Bokaer and William Forsythe: three American choreographers. Each with their own vision, identity and unique language of movement. Pond Way - Merce Cunningham Cunningham drew his inspiration for this work from his earliest childhood memories of skipping stones across pond. The ballet became a meditative experience in…

PEEPING TOM – MOEDER

As the curtain rises on Moeder, the audience is immediately plunged into an uncertain world, in which the stable identities and topographies that orient our movements and perceptions are held in suspension. Where are we, exactly? And who, out of all these figures, is the mother? Is she even there? Or is she, not merely absent,…
