Swan@Lake

by T42dance

Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake as a metaphor of obsessing with the unattainable ideal towards which dancers strive. Four dancers relate to themselves, others and their art. A self-critical and humorous reflection, in Dadaist dress, on being a dance artist.

24 Bilder pro Sekunde

by Boris Nikitin

Making films means watching people die in 24 frames per second according to French director Jean Cocteau's now-famous observation. This new evening by Boris Nikitin, which blends music theatre, dance and video art, appropriates this assertion and directs its gaze to integrating our bodies into time.

Game Theory

by Joshua Monten

Gaming pervades and interconnects many of Joshua Monten’s previous works. In «Game Theory», he looks more deeply at some of the building blocks of gaming and spectating: structure and freedom, mimesis, empathy, adrenaline and flow. An aesthetically rigorous composition that creates space for pleasure.

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.

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.
