Alessandro Sciarroni - Augusto

Alessandro Sciarroni - Augusto

Nauru is a small island-state in the Pacific. Once it was called ‘Pleasant Island’ by British whalers. The history of this island can be read as a parable of our modern age. After the discovery of a vast reserve of phosphate in its soil, the island became one of the world’s richest countries. Each plot of land, each garden, each corner of the island was dug up and mined – until nothing remained and all its natural resources had been depleted. In their second show, Silke Huysmans and Hannes Dereere travel to this place, which, groaning under a longing for growth, has been completely stripped of its resources and dug up until literally nothing remained. The island is now one of the world’s poorest countries, and so, in order to be able to survive, it now receives refugees from Australia in exchange for a substantial compensation. What future remains after such ecological and economic ruin?

Augusto is about the human desire for unconditional love and about the pain that goes with it. But it also pays tribute to the clown character of Auguste – the circus’s loser, the fool who cannot stop laughing even when things look dire.

Guillaume Paoli - Rückwärtsgewandt der Zukunft entgegen

Guillaume Paoli - Rückwärtsgewandt der Zukunft entgegen

Our concept of time is biologically determined by the physique of the human body; our eyes and feet only face what is in front of us. Still, we cannot see into the future but only look back at our past. Time’s eye leaves open the back door. There is an uncanny resemblance to those deep sea fish whose eyes go blind the moment they reach the deep sea gloom.

Elizabeth Ward - Dancing’s Demons

Elizabeth Ward - Dancing’s Demons

Dancing’s Demons looks towards the complicated political histories of early Modern Dance and its resonance on the present. The contemporary dance theatre is re-imaged as a haunted ground in which the themes of the ecstatic and the demonic in 1920’s Ausdrucktanz are re-activated while questioning the ideological National narratives that Early Modern Dance was wrestling with.
