Distant Matter by Van Dijk &Half Life by Eyal

Distant Matter by Anouk van Dijk premiered at the Komische Oper Berlin is a piece that raises several interrogatives. It opens up with a catwalk resembling a fashion show. Seven performers with futuristic/queer features cross the stage front and back, one by one, showing attitude and self confidence. The outfits are all in black although very eclectic. The most peculiar one is the lady with a black body and stretched shirt, black socks arriving over the knees and a motorbike helmet that reflects what surrounds her.

"F*** Me I love You" Dance Performance in the Contemporary Berlin

‘This city is not place for love. The people are too fragile to be genuine, too shrewd to be open. One becomes accustomed to immerse oneself in so many vain interests and ultimately lose sight of what is real’. Heinrich von Kleist, 1800. The performance runs around interactions, connections, sexual appeal and approaches but most of all about commitment today in big, cosmopolitan, western cities where the possibility of having it all is so tangible and possible to displace focused intentions and driven desires.

War Tragedies in 'Grand Finale' by Hofesh Shechter

"The work is a narration of the war tragedies that the world is still experiencing, most specifically related to the open conflict between Israel and Palestine considering the roots of the choreographer.
