Theatre / Performance
Following the success of her durational performance ›Laughing Hole‹ at PACT Zollverein last year, choreographer and visual artist La Ribot returns to present the German premiere of her latest production ›El Triunfo de La Libertad‹ as part of the Ruhrtriennale 2014. Recurring themes in La Ribot’s creative work are artistic, political and social fantasies engaging with transformation: the transformation of things, ways of seeing and, not least, ourselves. more ...

Dance / performance - one solo in three variations
With ›(Untitled) (2000)‹ award winning artist Tino Sehgal depicts an image of a world where dance and choreography can inspire a society. Originally conceived for the stage and danced by Sehgal himself, the solo remains in cultural memory as a ›museum of dance‹ – a museum containing movements and gestures of iconic dance styles rather than objects. Now, 14 years later, the bodies of three dancers confront the history of 20th century dance with the architecture of postindustrial landscapes. more ...

Fri 03.10.14 20:00 h

Performance
Drawing on hallmarks of the counterculture and experimental performances of the 60's such as excess, nudity, eroticism, ritualistic pleasure, audience participation and political engagement, the Danish choreographer Mette Ingvartsen, who regularly presents her critically acclaimed productions at PACT Zollverein, looks closely in her new solo ›69 positions‹ at the contemporary body searching for cracks in our understanding of sexuality today.  more ...

 

Wed 08.10.14 20:00 h

Dance / Performance
The dance-maker collective MAMAZA return to PACT Zollverein for the second this year with their acclaimed duet ›Eifo Efi‹. Drawing on their close relationship as collaborators, Ioannis Mandafounis and Fabrice Mazliah evoke a virtual environment in which their bodies are multiplied by imagined realities and real reflections. At once whole and multiple, the piece invites us to investigate and untangle the ›who‹ and ›where‹ of a constructed spectacle of diverse forms, echoes and impressions. more ...

Fri 17.10.14 18:00 h

Sat 18.10.14 18:00 h

Video works
In recent years William Forsythe has been actively exploring his multidisciplinary interests and extending his choreographic thinking into new forms and modes of presentation such as installations for galleries and public spaces, video works, digital media and publications. In conjunction with the Forsythe Company’s performances of ›Study #3‹, PACT Zollverein presents a selection of William Forsythe’s film and video works which expand the possibilities of how dance is performed and perceived.  more ...

Sat 18.10.14 20:00 h

Choreography by William Forsythe
»There’s no exhilaration quite like that of a Forsythe Company evening. (...) Made up of out-takes from works created by Forsythe over the last 30 years (...) [Study #3] has a relentless forward drive, revealing of the (...) choreographer’s preoccupation with the tragicomic nature of the human experience.« THE OBSERVER more ...

Thu 30.10.14 20:00 h

Fri 31.10.14 20:00 h

Performance
The works of Korean based choreographer, dancer and interdisciplinary artist, Geumhyung Jeong, constantly renegotiate the relationship between the human body and the objects which surround it. Through intense and risky physical interaction with her own body, she bestows plain everyday objects with bizarre and disconcerting lives of their own. more ...

November

Fri 14.11.14 20:00 h

Sat 15.11.14 20:00 h

Performance
Every theatre situation entails a random temporary community that follows it own rules: strangers meet up to sit more or less passively in the dark while watching others doing things in the light. In his latest work, French choreographer Xavier Le Roy has created three short pieces that try to displace the dividing lines between the public and the actors, fiction and reality, object and subject. more ...

Thu 20.11.14 19:00 h

In english
Composer, musician and installation artist Jonathan Bepler mingles seemingly disparate elements in his interdisciplinary works. His unmistakable style is hallmarked by a love of chaos, and a desire for reconciliation. Bepler has frequently worked for theater and dance productions and has collaborated with choreographers including John Jasperse and Sasha Waltz as well as notable musicians and orchestras such as the Ensemble Modern. more ...

Thu 20.11.14 19:45 h

Lecture in English
Art historian Dorothea von Hantelmann is one of the most versatile figures on the German art scene. She has published on artists including Pierre Huyghe, Philippe Parreno and Jeff Koons, curated a series of projects and exhibitions at the crossroads of visual arts and theatre such as ›I promise it’s political‹ at the Museum Ludwig in Cologne and currently holds of a Professorship for the history and significance of the documenta at The University of Kassel’s School of Art and Design. more ...

Thu 20.11.14 21:00 h

Performance
After the larger spectacles of ›Untried Untested‹ and ›Dark Matter‹ presented at PACT Zollverein in 2010 and 2012 respectively, New Zealand artist Kate McIntosh’s production ›All Ears‹ saw her return to the more intimate realm of the solo performance. Premiered at PACT Zollverein in 2013, ›All Ears‹ is driven by Kate’s ongoing fascination with destruction and creation, sense and nonsense, the whole and the fractured, by her playfulness with the audience and love of theatrical images. more ...

Together with their fellow members of John The Houseband, Alma Söderberg and Hendrik Willekens captivated visitors to PACT’s Spring Festival earlier this year with a six hour candle lit concert performance. Now the Swedish choreographer and performer and Belgian artist return with ›Idioter‹ a riveting audio-visual concert playing on the rhythms and musicality of body, language and geometric drawings.  more ...

Fri 12.12.14 19:00 h

Photography / video and installation art / Dance / Music / Performance
Since 2002, PACT Zollverein’s ATELIER series offers emerging and established artists from NRW, Germany and abroad a chance to present their work to the general public during a shared evening length programme.

Tue 16.12.14 14:00 h

Performance for children
›dynamo‹ gets underway with ›Matrioska‹ an acclaimed performance for children by Portuguese choreographer Tiago Guedes. The starting point for the piece is the idea that there are many layers of meaning in the things that surround us. What we see is the first, most obvious image, with many other images hiding behind it. Using the simplest of means, Guedes creates a place of constant discovery and curiosity, a magical world full of shapes, shadows and characters that amuse, delight, startle and raise questions.  more ...

 

Thu 18.12.14 10:30 h
