Theater Rotterdam / Erik Whien / Boogaerdt/Vanderschoot

Soul #2 performers
Dancers are magicians who use their bodies to play with time, space and emotion. They are different from us, the audience, with our bums on the seats. Aren’t they?

Musical theatre
Krotoa, eve of mankind
Volksoperahuis / Artscape Cape Town

Dance 12+
Maas Theater en Dans
We all love a bit of schadenfreude, but can we also laugh at our own faults? Victory is one big failure show on the theme of being allowed to make mistakes.

Quite Discontinuou
Schifft / Jasper van Luijk
In Quite Discontinuous, our fascination with lifelessness is captured in a precise, painfully sharp choreography alternating between partner dances and tense solos.

Musical theatre
Pointless International Medley
MaarschappijDiscordia / ’t Barre Land
A new medley is drawn from 200 years’ worth of classic clowns scenes. Never the same twice, and always simply the best. Probably unnecessary but still essential.

Blueprint on memory
WArd/waRD / Ann Van den Broek
The blueprint is literally visible on the floor as the performers move through wires, cables, pedals and triggers. A complex chaos that tests the mental and physical memories of the performers.
