Dance and video piece with double perspective

  • Concept and choreography - La Ribot
  • Composition - Alexandre Babel

First part of the double evening: In ‹LIVEstinguished›, the dancers' bodies set everything in motion. They are equipped with cameras. The audience experiences two points of view: the frontal view of the performance and, on their own mobile phones, the personal view of the person being filmed live. A dizzying scale game between close-up and long shot, focal length and depth of field emerges. The bodies become luminous tableaus - erotic, ridiculous, bizarre - that fade away.

(La Ribot) imitated many times, but never equalled (...) with an alert sensitivity for people and a keen eye for humour in the human drama.

A ballet from many points of view

  • Concept and Choreography: Fabrice Mazliah

Second part of the evening: everyday objects suddenly take on new life and new meaning, opening up new spaces of expectation and horizons of experience. With humour and a fresh eye, we ask: What do we know about what a body can be? Born in Geneva, successful throughout Europe as a dancer and choreographer, recently at home in Basel: that is the choreographer and artist Fabrice Mazliah. He is developing a world premiere for Ballett Basel. Mazliah's work questions the relationship between the objects of our environment and our bodies. He allows different experiences to collide and celebrates the diversity of possible perspectives that can be embodied on stage.

Together with the dramaturgy, the Basel Kulturhaus Bider & Tanner has curated the book table for our plays for many years. Now this selection of books, CDs, DVDs, catalogues or even sheet music can be accessed at any time in the online shop. It's worth browsing regularly.
