Nur Tote singen schöner

by Vorstadttheater Basel

A man and a woman play all the parts that a good detective drama needs and tell a dark and gritty story in the style of film noir. And when the plot gathers pace and the tension increases, feelings grow and we hear singing. A mystery pocket musical about destroyed dreams, lost hopes and cold coffee.

Maintaining Stranger

by Simone Aughterlony

An artificially cultivated, stony desert becomes a cruising zone for foreign encounters. This is where a number of supporting actors meet, who are yet iconic in their own way. In this artificial wasteland, they face their insignificance and sketch out intimacies that do not claim to be intimate.

Actéon

by Cie Philippe Saire

This dance piece reinterprets the myth of the eponymous Greek, the the hunter turned into a stag by the goddess Artemis then torn apart by hounds. It unfolds in the fascinating and controversial world of hunting, allegorically addressing our relationship with the wild, a «utopia of nature».

Eromania (History X)

by Think Tank Theatre

No profession can match that of camgirl in discussing globalization 2.0, both in terms of the circulation of money it implies and the technical devices it invents. For a country like Romania, still struggling in the post-Ceauşescu years, this flourishing and highly structured business is a bargain.
