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.

Das Weinen (Das Wähnen)

by Christoph Marthaler

In the late 1980s, Dieter Roth gave two special editions of his texts to Christoph Marthaler. The latter thenceforth moved from city to city, and excerpts from these texts would keep appearing in Marthaler's productions – above all a poem about a so called ‘fattened calf’. Now, almost 30 years later, we are witnessing the first highly public encounter between Roth and Marthaler. Two Swiss anomalies who have a lot in common, although they have not often crossed paths.

Outrage au public

by Compagnie Emilie Charriot

For Émilie Charriot, the theatre holds the possibility of an intense relationship, as fragile as it is strong. By staging Peter Handke’s landmark text she explores what happens to the presence of the actor once false expectations have been swept aside.

What is Human

by Fleischlin/Meser

The performance is both a space for thinking and a feast. The audience first participates as spectators and then sits down at the large family table during the evening, invited to celebrate and reflect on their own family reality and their relationship with the global family.
