Rabina Miya – Fnuiken What if we could fly? What is stopping us? I have wings too. But what if my wings get curbed in their growth? How do you handle that?
Inspired by her family’s history Rabina Miya creates a surrealistic world in which performers Berthe Kilozo en Thao Quyen Ha are looking for their wings. A danceperformance about vulnerability, recovery and transformation.

What happens when the bright side slowly fades? And realities kick in? Gloria Boateng and Jade Wheeler take you from Tomorrowland to the Integration office. The Promised Boom: an anti-dream.

Çiğdem y Mirol – Bookperformance It is when the book, the performance, the author and the reader/audience becomes one within the body, sound, “eye” and “I” by Çiğdem Y. Mirol.
It is where the borders between the stage and the audience breaks down, thanks to the setting of objects, movements and silence while written words are uttered and fly through the images and lines, that enable this event to take place.
It is how “enjoying” becomes the synonym of “understanding” in terms of the weird and absurd story of life and love as long as they release the same sound and create homonym when “we” enjoy and/or understand.
