- Minus 16 by Ohad Naharin
A favourite in the repertoire of countless renowned companies throughout the globe. Created in 1999, Naharin’s seminal piece "Minus 16" features eclectic music ranging from Dean Martin to mambo, and from techno to traditional music. It removes the barrier between its performers and the audience with elements of unpredictability and fun. The dancers explore improvisation within the work, and in preparation the cast trained with Gaga, Naharin’s movement language.

- BLACK MOON : revisited by Dorotea Saykaly
In a mythical sci-fi universe, fourteen Beings embark on a quest for light while having to accept comfort in darkness. Oscillating between togetherness and solitude their odyssey explores our relationship to faith at life’s inevitable end. The storytelling and image making is fueled by contrasts as the Beings navigate through ease and desperation, gravity and weightlessness, brokenness and fluidity. Each Being embodies facets of human nature and together they form an inseparable alliance to traverse through a universe of darkness and celestial wonders.
