Sottovoce

by Compagnie Linga

Singing and dancing use the body's internal channels to express themselves. In collaboration with the Association Vocale de Suisse Romande, Linga embarks on a journey through an aurally eventful landscape. From a contrast of energy and physicality emerges, through the infiltration of opposing artistic ideas, a mixture of genres.

Die Zufügung / Über das Altern und den Tod hinaus

by Corinne Maier

Today, people are living longer than ever before – but what impact does this have on us, as well as on younger generations? A stage play about age has been written by german author Gerlind Reinshagen, the most famous female playwright in West Germany during the 1970s and 80s. The author suddenly died in June 2019 before the actual start of rehearsals. What remains are scraps of conversations, thoughts and some rough notes. This material and the team’s own improvisation practices have resulted in this production.

If only

by ZOO / Thomas Hauert

We are aware that our lifestyles are not sustainable and that our culture is harming the planet. We may assume that as a culture we have taken the wrong way, without realising the consequences of our choices. This observation marks the starting point of this project's choreographic and dramaturgic quest.

Book is a book is a book

by Trickster-p

A performance in which each spectator, equipped with earphones, is invited to travel through the pages of a book, discovering an imaginary and imaginative world. An apparently simple book transforms into an object that creates connections between time and space, dream and memory.
