Calendar

UND SO KAMEN WIR ZUSAMMEN | AND SO WE CAME TOGETHER

Together with dancers from Leipzig and Hamburg, choreographer Patricia Carolin Mai asks herself if couple dance is needed to touch each other.

ALTE BEKANNTE // BEKANNTE ALTE | OLD WELL-KNOWN // WELL-KNOWN OLD

Once a dancer, forever a dancer. When is a dancer too old to dance? With humor and big pictures, bodytalk approaches aging.

WERKSTATT PLUS: FLYING STORIES OF OUR MOVING FEET

The aesthetics of our bodies are deeply colonized, this performance looks at the influences of ancestral and non-Western civilizations.

COMMANDER

Using audiovisual projections and physical theater, the group Farm in the Cave addresses the online radicalization of youth and the immature behavior of our adult society. Follow them into the depths of the Darknet.

ELFENBEIN | IVORY

A PERFORMATIVE APPROACH TO A FLESHLESS HERITAGE

What visible and invisible legacies do we carry around with us? An ivory tooth gives its future heiress and four performance artists cause to search for responsibility in a society whose colonial heritage still resides in museums, cellars and bodies.

LEIPZIG DENKT: ALARM UND UTOPIE | LEIPZIG THINKS: ALARM AND UTOPIA

In a time of social discord and bubble-ization, the festival creates and tests spaces for thinking and speaking together in different settings.

CABOOM

CABOOM is a dance about chaos. About the fears and insecurities that chaos causes. But also about adventures and the chances that arise from chaos.

EMBRACE EMBRACE — LOFFT IN CONCERT: THORD1S

Vocals that go to your heart, saxophone cuddle vibes and bass for the body - neither man nor woman, simply: THORD1S!

WERKSTATT: SHAME ON US

SHAME ON US ventures an attempt to approach female shame, to examine it as well as to question it in moments of one's own life.

LESBIAN VAMPIRE FANTASY

The musical nightmare of patriarchy: queer vampires of different generations are choreographing themselves in a performative musical through queer histories and presents, sucking the blood out of the veins of cis-heteronormativity.

EURO-SCENE LEIPZIG: SULLE SPONDE DEL LAGO – ON THE SHORES OF THE LAKE

As part of euro-scene Leipzig 2022, the FORWARD DANCE COMPANY takes a critical look at one of the most famous works of classical ballet: Swan Lake.
