Choreography for exciting head-body cinema

Three protagonists. One room. A few everyday objects that are not connected. There is not just one plot here, but several mysteriously superimposed perspectives. Telling Stories' tells of the act of storytelling. Through the recurring nesting of physical and textual pictorial descriptions, 'Telling Stories' hovers in the infinitely rich space between cognition and meaning. In this diversity, dreamlike and invitingly open, everything is possible for performer and audience. And everything has meaning. Swiss choreographer Fabrice Mazliah presents the acclaimed 'Telling Stories' in January and a world premiere tailor-made for Ballett Basel in April. The world premiere of 'Telling Stories' took place in 2015 at Künstlerhaus Mousonturm, Frankfurt.

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.
