Antibodies

By Boogaerdt / VanderSchoot

In the new Theater Rotterdam production ANTIBODIES, the performance duo Boogaerdt/VanderSchoot honours feminine anatomy as the source of creation during a ritual meeting. In a technologically mediated séance, we see a woman moving in a closed capsule between reality, fiction, dream and hallucination. On the basis of her online data, she descends into twilight zones where she meets variants of herself.

Forces of Nature

By Ivana Müller

The five fundamental mechanical principles of movement are gravity, inertia, resistance, momentum, action, and reaction. And they inspire Ivana Müller in her new work. Thus, these principles compel bodies, objects, animals, water, minerals and plants to move. Indeed, we must control them if we want to walk and dance. What if these forces apply to social, political and emotional bodies? A new perspective arises on the world around us.
