Tiny molecules crash against each other, hug each other, walk, play, dance; chemical messengers respond to every stimulation, neurotransmitters of emotions. There are 60,000 modes of existence, transmissions of anger, fear, love, trust. Hemisphere is their journey, as well as it is yours: a constantly developing reaction, an homage to man and his incredible mechanism, everyday balance, the…

PETRA NAJMAN (Croatia) – MY DEATH AND ME

Friday 30.09.2022 at 20:00 How can we, in terms of emotions, deal with mortality and face ourselves as mortal beings? The performer establishes a very close relationship with her stage partner – death – thus trying to convey a very specific emotion and to present death as inevitability, a part of life, while toying with grotesque, with the elements of horror, drama, comedy, and parody alongside her trapeze performance.

For herself? For all the things she has lost? For a new beginning? It’s a quest for an exit from a mental loop, the concert of a gesture that conveys powerful images. The performance Feathers explores clown language, toying with the poetic and the grotesque, the comic and the subliminal, between the rhythms and the flight of birds. Elena Burani…

SOM NOISE (Spain) – BREACH

Thursday 29.9.2022. at 20:00 A knot, the fruit of the oppression of her pleasure. A knot that binds her hands and forces her to inflict violence on herself. After externalizing the anger and physically experiencing the pain, she begins to forgive and connect with her inner being. Breach talks about sexist violence against a woman’s body as a collective and transgenerational memory, perpetrated by the patriarchal system and Christian heritage. Violence is not individual, direct, or isolated; rather, it is expressed in a multitude of forms and is represented metaphorically…

COMPANY B.A.L. (France) BESTIAIRE /BESTIARY

Sunday 25.09.2022 at 12:00 Just like a ringmaster in the traditional circus with animals, the acrobat Hichem Chérif embodies the animals living inside of him. Without any masks, he changes his human nature and becomes a four-legged creature, a bird, a primate.

A source of surprise and astonishment, Bestiary is a…

FABRIZIO ROSSELLI (France) BAKÉKÉ

Friday 23.09.2022 at 20:00 Dressed in a black overcoat and a straw hat, a stammering, dizzy man starts maneuvering buckets like a worker performing routine operations.
