Dance / Performance
Valeska Gert was one of the greatest artists of her time. As early as the 1920’s, her radical performance practice combined theatre, dance, cinema, poetry and singing and was defined by a fearless will to experiment with themes of gender, race, national identity and aesthetics. In the latest production in her critically acclaimed ›Monument‹ series, choreographer Eszter Salamon in artistic collaboration with Boglarka Börcsök and Sylvie Garot, nears Valeska Gert’s life and work through a shifting collection of related performative acts.

Fri 17.11.17 20:00 h

Sat 18.11.17 20:00 h

Performance
›21 pornographies‹ is the fourth part of Mette Ingvartsen’s work cycle ›The Red Pieces‹ looking at the political dimensions of sexuality. Pornography today includes a politically wide range of expressions and uses, from queer and feminist stances to sexualized torture in war. Starting from the idea that pornography has permeated many areas of society, Ingvartsen explores its workings through a collection of erotic and emotive materials sampled from sources including film and literature.

Fri 24.11.17 20:00 h

Sat 25.11.17 20:00 h

Performance
She’s brutally executed cherries, cooked up catastrophes in which you can literally taste the end of the world and even taught theatre props to dance: In her internationally presented acclaimed works, Eva Meyer-Keller repeatedly examines the relationship between art and science. In her latest production, she appropriates a series of scientific paradigms or models in mathematics and the natural sciences as performative scores for expansive, choreographed scenarios carried out in collaboration with three other performers and the help of everyday household objects.

Sun 26.11.17 16:00 h

Conference / Public panel discussion
The potential of intermediality in dance journalism in respect to participation in a culturally diverse society.
