Explosive moon research and an all-dancing art satire

Two energetic iconoclasts meet and make the dance floor shake: the Swede Alexander Ekman, whose gripping stage language was last experienced at Theater Basel in his full-length piece 'Cow', and the Greek Andonis Foniadakis. In Foniadakis' atmospherically dense piece 'Far Side', the ensemble explores the dark side of the moon ("far side of the moon") to newly composed music by Julien Tarride. In 'FIT', Ekman works with existing music on concrete questions of our time: Who or what fits into a social or artistic context? Between demarcation and belonging, one experiences a humorous dance piece in which one swims with the current but also against it. In addition to Foniadakis's physically large gestures, Ekman's evening is characterised by theatrically danced interpersonal relationships and some situational comedy.
