Untitled [2020]

by junges theater basel

Six young women from Basel question the emancipatory, empowering and politicising potential of self-portraits and self-narratives both online and offline: Which versions of ourselves do we want to share? How do we describe the world? Who follows us? Who connects with us? And how do we start a revolution together?

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.
