After The Echo

Dutch Season 2022

Mime duo DeRonde/Deroo explore the struggle and the beauty of melancholy in this award-winning, visually stunning physical performance. Set in a dark and windy winter dreamscape, After The Echo takes you on a surrealist journey punctuated by explosions of colour and warmth: a blood-and-thunder pop ballad in a red sequin dress, a roadside encounter with a golden stag, two lost souls in a storm longing for a Brazilian beach.

A Pole Tragedy

A Pole Tragedy

Up-and-coming performance artist Sofie Kramer searches for female autonomy and physical self-determination in a mind-blowing pole dancing performance based on "Iphigenia in Aulis", the famous Greek tragedy about the sacrifice of a young girl's body. In a sweaty duet between her body and a sky-high pole, Kramer examines the thin line between violence and the erotic. Together with sound artist Mári Máko, she built her own interactive dancing pole, which she plays with her body as a musical instrument. The hard, immobile piece of steel comes to life in this dark female fantasy.

Am I A Robot?*

Am I A Robot?*

Funny, uncomfortable, provoking, sometimes with a delay, Sophia answers questions. Inspired by a true story, “AM I A ROBOT?*” invites you to encounter SOPHIA. She is a social humanoid robot that was activated on February 14, 2016 and is the first robot to receive citizenship of any country. AM I A ROBOT?* is a documentary show on the edge: an inappropriate circus demonstration to question our capability for empathy and explore our repetitive failure to recognise the rights of what is perceived as otherness.
