July 3 - 4, 2015 // Festival Belluard Bollwerk International (CH)
HOODS by Ingri Fiksdal / Signe Becker takes shape as a meeting in a secret society where the occult faces the protracted, and dead and deadly bodies merge in a slowly dissolving landscape. The borders between choreography, scenography, performers and audience are fleeting, and navigation becomes something to choose.
“A delightful, surreal dream-like world with masquerade. You will find freedom behind the veil, light, colours, fabric, music and bodies floating freely in this pioneering theatre-goes-installation." Avant Garden Trondheim
19th to 23rd of September 2015, Student center Zagreb

The apap artist and Danish choreographer Mette Ingvartsen presents her solo piece 69 positions, co-produced by SZENE Salzburg, for the first time in front of an Austrian audience.
Excess, nudity, eroticism, audience participation and political engagement – all expressions of sexual utopia from experimental performance art of the ‘60s. Mette Ingvartsen focuses on sexuality, the political aspect of the human body, and the cracks in society’s structures. The audience is taken on a trip through a dance archive of performances, books, films, texts, and images.
Date: 25th to 27th of June, 2015
Location : ARGEkultur Salzburg

This project wants to face an enigma. The enigma of how the meeting of two can create a third thing, a third dimension, something that was not there before, and that appears, arises from an unintended manner. This “third thing” while arising, transforms both: 1 and 2 ... thus producing a shift, a process of de-identification. And to do so, this project proposes to alter the conditions and circumstances under which it will be developed. What usually runs in the working studio, will take place in a shared manner. The point where content and methodology meet has to do with the fact that this project wants to propose a process full of encounters.Two of these encounters will be with Vedrana Klepica and Mala Kline; understanding them as an invitation to unexpected events!
