In collaboration with the choreographer and dancer Radouan Mriziga, the challenge taken up by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker is to make Vivaldi's Four Seasons heard, using the tools of dance to hone the way we listen to this baroque masterpiece. Under the auspices of abstraction, the resulting alliance reconnects with the imaginary ecological world that is conjured up by this famous concerto.

Antonio Vivaldi's The Four Seasons is undoubtedly one of the most famous "hits" of Western high-culture music. Which of us has never heard the first, spritely notes of Spring, or the soaring, lyrical flights of Summer? The four concertos are, however, much more than a heritage set in stone, or a ritornello which has been heard over and over again hundreds of times. Accompanied by Amandine Beyer, the undertaking that Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and Radouan Mriziga embark upon consists of apprehending the score in all its complexity in order to expose the originality of this baroque masterpiece and the emotions it stirs up. With their common fascination for the natural elements, geometry and the power of abstraction, the two artists combine their approaches to dance in order to convey all the nuances of this score – alternating between wild flights, gentle melancholia and bucolic euphoria. Via the prism of the four seasons, a whole ecological backdrop flows in, irrigating the movement in the process. The concern that this process evokes is rooted in the perception of climate upheaval, of which one of the most worrying signs is the gradual fading away of the passage of the seasons.

Who’s Afraid of Representation?

Theatre Portrait

We find ourselves in the company of major figures of European Body Art (Joseph Beuys, Orlan, Marina Abramović, to name a few) via their accounts of exhibitions and public scarifications dating back to the 1970s. In parallel with this runs the true story of a killing spree carried out by a Lebanese office at his workplace, and the fluctuating motivations for his acts.

At the crossroads between musical and documentary, Lola Arias brings us a choral composition in which six female former inmates talk about their lives during and after incarceration. Their six intertwining destinies raise questions about the various forms of violence present in contemporary society, whilst exploring the margins of fiction and reality at the same time.

Robert Wilson
PESSOA – Since I've been me

Theatre
Buy tickets

The hero of this new work by Robert Wilson is Fernando Pessoa. And a paradoxical hero at that. The Portuguese poet spent his life 'multiplying himself', inventing heteronyms, or fictitious authors, to whom he attributed works he himself wrote. He even went as far as to invent relationships, either amicable ones or from master to disciple, between his different avatars.

Jan Martens
VOICE NOISE

Dance
Buy tickets

In this breakthrough piece for Jan Martens, VOICE NOISE brings together six dancers to shape a soundscape comprising some of the great female performers and composers of our time. In his own pop-inspired and precise way, the choreographer questions a very contemporary story, and in doing so raises the question of how some of these voices were silenced.
