a dance piece by Tomer Zirkilevich
“There is something endless in a night train…”
A simple story of one woman, a dancer, an actress, a wife and a mother, searching for belonging, love, freedom, exposure, identity, morals and independence. Her ambivalent state of mind brings her to a journey of self-discovery. Where and to whom does she belong? Where did she come from, and whence she was going? Interactions with an old woman, a military orchestra, elephants and even Marlene Dietrich lead her to the dreamy past, the real present and the endless future.

“Auf wiedersehn” is being watched with a sense of participation in the honest performance, not over esthetic, touching in its simplicity and balance. Viewing and staying with you for a long time.

a dancepiece by Christine Bonansea
"Asteria" is a choreographic series of 11 women solo, inspired by the 11 body lives of the mythical Greek figure Asteria. This project attempts to problematize aspects of temporality and transformation of the body in space.
Based on the concept of "eternal recurrence", from Friedrich Nietzsche, I create an iterative process using the idea that with infinite time and a finite number of events, events will recur again and again infinitely.
I want to instigate an artistic dialogue and further experimentation through juxtaposition, repetition and displacement of perception with the different potential forms of 1 solo.
Friedrich Nietzsche: “All truth is crooked, time itself is a circle.”
