9 October @ 8PM, A4
Yuri Korec a CO.: Sapiens Territory (SK)
Where is the end of a body and where is the start of patterns that we slide into day by day? Is it still possible to tell them apart after all these years, or have they grown together into an inseparable tangle, as a broken leg grows into the casket?
10 October @ 8PM, A4
Temporary Collective / Dame De pic: Same Same (CZ/BE)
Tereza Ondrová and Petra Tejnorová, two important figures of the Czech scene, led by Karine Ponties, a French-Belgian choreographer, created a duet edging on soft humour, irony and satire.
13 October @ 7PM, činohra SND
Staatstheater Mainz / Sharon Eyal / Soul Chain (DE)
Inspired by strong emotions related to love, the Soul Chain choreography connects ballet and electro into a fascinating modern dance. The troupe becomes a package full of energy in an extraordinary demanding choreography that was awarded with German Faust theatre prize in 2018.

RootlesRoot / Stones & Bones (GR)
A choreography for 4 dancers and marble-like eternity of poetry.
18 October @ 8PM, A4
Masako Matsushita / Un/dress Moving Painting (IT)
Natural way of dressing and undressing, the role of woman’s clothing and body in modern society have become a topic for a performance based on fusion of body and clothes, creating a moving picture.
18 October @ 8PM, A4
Joy Alpuerto Ritter / Babae (DE)
When creating her solo work, Joy was inspired by the witch dance by Mary Wigman, as well as by traditions from her native Philippines. Materiality, sensuality, and elastic and energetic, almost animal-like movement for a basis of a dance that Joy uses to bring us into her world, which is a ritual of modern woman.
20 October @ 8PM, A4
Divadlo Štúdio tanca BB / Muž bez vlastností (SK)
Using their typical theatrical-movement language, Jozef Vlk and Stanislava Vlčeková created a rich kaleidoscope of characters inspired by Rober Musil, who is an ironical-disillusional panorama of modern society.
