100 years after the birth of the author and intellectual Julio Cortazar, who’s stories explored the border between reality and fiction, the Urban Dance Theatre LOW AIR from Vilnius embark on an excursion into a surreal world.
Today we live in a world where the lines between facts and fantasies seem to be continuously blurred. The highly dynamic performance by the Lithuanian collective picks up this development and casually drifts from everyday realities in a world of fantastic reality.

Using the language of Krump, Nach, the avatar of dancer and choreographer Anne-Marie Van gives birth to the multiple characters bubbling under her skin. In a solo of rare intensity, Nach invites you to enter her cell and to witness the kaleidoscopic metamorphosis of her androgynous body.
Cellule offers a personal and liberated vision of Krump, a dance style born in the early 2000s after the race riots in Los Angeles.

Migrant Bodies is an international project that connects four European choreographic centres in Paris, Bassano del Grappa, Eisenstadt and Zagreb. A group of international choreographers, writers, filmmakers, educational institutions and citizens are working together with migrants and refugees. Together they are creating new and relevant methods of inclusion for migrants and local citizens with dance and moment based initiatives.
For the installation shown in Eisenstadt a group of unaccompanied minor refugees, who currently live in Rechnitz, have been working with a group of local citizens for several months in the Choreographic Center Burgenland.

A piece about what is inherent to the human body: movements, states, emotions, life stories. What shapes us? Oscillating between movement and voice, the performer develops a poetic cosmos of associations, layer by layer, revealing these stories to the audience.
The relation of movement and voice to develop a new "language" underlies this choreographic work: A dance of associations and references from known and unknown movements, gestures, to sounds, to singing, speaking unfolds, and successively recognizable forms and meanings reach the surface.
Choreography: Eva-Maria Schaller

Blatný is based on the literature of the Czech poet Ivan Blatný. In 1948 he travelled to London and never returned. In an BBC interview during his journey he criticised the oppression of freedom and culture in Czechoslovakia. Shortly after that he was categorised as traitor. His assets were confiscated, he lost his citizenship and his poems were prohibited. His life in exile was full of material worries and psychological difficulties.

Stage performance, live concert or sculpture? Drift (I,II) is an exploration of slowness that defies genres. Two male performers wearing pink hoodies question our gaze and like two islands navigate from codependency to estrangement. Venturing into exhaustion, their bodies are forced to manoeuvre with precision through an immensity of details, an infrastructure of otherwise unnoticed actions.
Choreography: Mario Barrantes Espinoza & Thomas Birzan

In their acoustic manifestation, different materials can create imaginary spaces on stage: the rustling of the leaves, the crunching of gravel, or the friction of surfaces such as concrete or glass, remind us that utopian sculptures
can appear through physical transformation. Inspired by the design ideas and architectural concepts of the Bauhaus founded 100 years ago in Weimar, the performers take the principle of “Form Follows Function” quite literally, while simultaneously deconstructing it.
In Models of Reality the transformation and solidification of sound into spatial contexts are the acoustic counterpart to the leaps of bodies and minds and evoke different emotional connotations: How do we, for instance, perceive an embrace when it’s accompanied by the sound of cracking? Sensory atmospheres and noise collages come together to create a foundation for imaginary rooms centred around the human body – according to Foucault the “main actor of all utopias”.
