Starting with a world premiere created and presented by the ensemble, the programme continues with a duet evening dedicated to the theme of love by Nazareth Panadero & Co and toaspern|moeller. Three solos by Oleg Stepanov, Jonathan Fredrickson and Tilman O'Donnell will also be presented at the festival, as well as a virtual ball in the form of the interactive virtual reality performance 'Le Bal de Paris' by Spanish choreographer Blanca Li.
