In the middle of a constant ongoing creative process, the dancers, the objects and the space are uncovering the endless possibilities of "being together". This shared space shows the two sides of a process: the objects and the beings are constantly defining themselves reciprocally.Is an object more emotional than a body? Is a body more instrumental than an object? How do we build sense?Who is really finished?UNFINISHED is an invitation to take part on the mystery of an art piece in incessant evolution...

Members of a warrior society, we find ourselves trapped between fighting visible enemies and ghosts.We try to make our story stand out amongst the crowd but instead our personal story becomes the story of our world.We try to hold on to our identity, to our beloved ones and to our dreams until the stage becomes a cemetery of lost wishes and battles.

I imagine a dystopian world where citizens live in a dehumanized state. In this world “everyone belongs to everyone else”; conformity is the key and individuality is lost.

This room is a balloon; a container of air, weightless and fragile. Our bodies are mole- cules suspended by each other’s proximity.Together we are a closed system evolving to a state of maximum entropy. We are waiting to burst.
We are the people invites you to discover the unfamiliar setting through your senses. With repetition and destruction we will reinvent a space that is our own; a space that is our room.
Concept: Barbara England
Performers: Alina Walter, Lia Beuchat, Chiara Leonardi, Weibke Färber, Aura Antikiainen, Lara Pigorsch.
Music: Instead (Madeleine Peyroux); Hang on there little tomato (Pink Martini)

Screaming, shouting, laughing, shaking, quaking, quivering. In anger, rage, pleasure, pain. We will be seen. We will be heard. We will live in the excess. In the ecstasy of our bodies without control.This is a utopia of heightened expressivity and physical release.
Champagne Wishes and Caviar Dreams explores what happens when the body reaches its peak of what is unbearable, and expresses itself in ways which are often obscene.
Choreography: Emily Barasch
Performers: Marah Haj, Żaneta Kesik,Therese Nübling, Daniel Michalek, Rosalie Kubny
