Dance / As part of Ruhrtriennale
In his latest production ›CAEN AMOUR‹, New York choreographer Trajal Harrell prompts a sensuous encounter between the legendary dance and Art Nouveau icon, Loïe Fuller and the founder of the dance performance art Butoh, Tatsumi Hijikata. Swathed in flowing garments and inspired by Oriental concepts, Fuller’s dancing was simultaneously avant-garde and Vaudeville in nature and posthumously hailed as modern dance.

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.

The freethought collective comes together in public research, public study and the constitution of discursive and creative platforms.

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.

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
