The Mad Hatter’s Tea Party

Young psychotherapist Ernest is an expert in being normal – he even has a PhD in normalization. He’s just begun his first job, at the prestigious (if rather gloomy) Institute for Extremely Normal Behaviour. It’s immediately clear his patients need his help: the March Hare, the Mad Hatter, Tweedledum and Tweedledee and the furious Queen […]

空 KU

What is Ku?In an ever-changing world.The sun rises from the east in the morning and sets in the west in the evening.The moon then rises and its shape changes every cycle.The cherry blossom loses its flowers in the wind 10 days only after blooming.There must be a law guiding this ever-changing world.The ancient Indian Buddhists […]

Eskapist

Daydreaming, escape from reality, the power of imagination … are you an escapist? If so, when? We occasionally withdraw from reality by daydreaming, listening to music, watching a film or by inventing a new reality. At the theatre, you will visit, for a moment, a world you may never have encountered before in your own […]

Эстроген

Отношения мужчины и женщины — вечная тема, без времени и границ. Вам предстоит увидеть несколько ее вариаций — в разных уголках вселенной, на разных языках, но с одной мощной движущей силой с обеих сторон: мечтой о доверии… Может ли мужчина в самом деле удовлетворить потребности женщины? Женщины могут твердить о том, как они довольны и счастливы, но что у них на душе […]

May B

May B heralded the international breakthrough of Maguy Marin and has been performed worldwide since 1981. It is based on the writings of Samuel Beckett, who unexpectedly gave the then young and unknown French choreographer his blessing to adapt his work.

Considered one of the most important modernist 20th-century authors, Virginia Woolf in her writings searched for forms that defied the false order of traditional narrative conventions and enabled her to depict reality as she perceived it: heightened, startling and poignant. Life is not a series of gig-lamps symmetrically arranged; life is a luminous halo, a […]

Three ballets by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker

Each dancer is like a musical instrument with its own sonority and colour. Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker This triptych spans ten years of creation (from 1986 to 1995) and bears witness to Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s remarkable dialogues with the great scores of classical music. The term “dialogue” is undoubtedly too tame to describe this almost physical confrontation […]
