An impression of An Imaginary Symposium

Imagine this! Danae Theodoridou's An Imaginary Symposium had its première on 05.10 (stage version) & 06.10 (participatory version) at Veem House for Performance. Modes of sociability in ancient Greece are radically brought together on stage with modes of artificial intelligence during this Imaginary Symposium. While eating and drinking, different imaginaries for complex societies are put on the table.

New season, new collaborations

Karel starts the creation of Repetition, crystallising his previous transdisciplinary experiences and research into a sculpture and performance. As a choreographer and dancer, Cassiel delves deep into the scenes and movement material of Hip Hop and House dance for his forthcoming solo.


The fruits of Simon Mayer/Kopf Hoch's recent labour

Sons of Sissy and Oh Magic continue their journey around Europe and Simon has even more in store for us. Together with Coupé Décalé, he invites us to collectively reflect on the exploration of one's own ecstatic body during the Ecstatic Body Festival (8 > 13.10) at Tanzquartier Wien, with workshops, discussions, screenings, food and of course: celebration! In July, the audio performances of SunBengSitting and Sons of Sissy were released on CD. We will put them on sale on our website soon. In the meantime, take a moment to enjoy the videos of the CD releases Sons of Sissy and SunBengSitting.

The set design and costumes he created for Léa Drouet's Boundary Games will travel from Nanterre-Amandiers (20 > 23.09) to Festival Actoral (09 & 10.10) and he dances in Square Dance, the new production of Bryan Campbell (performer in Gaëtan's recent project As We Were Moving Ahead Occasionally We Saw Brief Glimpses of Beauty).
