How to stay yourself when you meet the Other? Francesca Foscarini and Andrea Costanzo Martini explore the tension between what divides and what unites, in the search for a possible Us. Fuelled with energy by Andrea Cera's music and unfolding a succession of playful solos and joined moves, this exhilarating duet will leave you breathless.


Choreography: Francesca Foscarini

Friday | 21h | OHO

Daniele Ninarello creates an uninterrupted flow of movements in dialogue with the live soundscape played by Dan Kinzelman, mixing improvised music with his voice and saxophone. Kudoku, a duet between two highly skilled artists explores the physical and sonic expression of the body, the visible traces it leaves in time and space. Daniele Ninarello’s hypnotic moves will slowly wipe your gaze clean and bring you to a state of peace.


Choreography: Daniele Ninarello & Dan Kinzelman

“Dreamers, they never learn, they never learn. Beyond the point of no return, of no return. When it’s too late, the damage is done, the damage is done. First goes, beyond me beyond you. A white room, by a window where the sun comes through. We are just happy to serve, happy to serve you.”  (Thom Yorke)


Choreography: Emmanuel Obeya

Jump on an astral train taking you on a journey of transformations. Turning David and Goliath into a Centaur, climbing a mountain or singing a love song, Žigan Krajnčan and Gašper Kunšek invite dream-like images on stage. Alien Express is a disarming and gripping duet traveling from duality to unity, solidly anchored in a refreshing friendship.


Choreography: Žigan Krajnčan and Gašper Kunšek
