This is the newest fierce and powerful piece in the portfolio of Omar Rajeh. #minaret is a performance with a rebellious spirit against the destroying of ancient cities and human lives, of historical achievements and cultures. Can we stop the war? Can we act, resist ‘numbing’, or have we become accustomed to the everyday dark news reports from this troubled region?

THE GREAT TAMER displays the idea that human life can be seen as a journey of discovery, an exploration for hidden treasure, an inner archaeological excavation for meaning. For nearly 3 decades, Dimitris Papaioannou has been staging new worlds described as a dreamlike absurd circus. Human bodies become battlegrounds, interacting with raw materials, fusing into hybrids, giving rise to optical illusions that make his work outstanding.
Parental Guidance: this performance may be inappropriate for children under 14.

AURA Dance Theatre and famous Lithuanian choreographer Birutė Letukaitė reflect on „godos” through recreating popular myths and legends from the Baltic country.

GODOS is in 2 parts with an intermission.

What does a contemporary dance piece consist of? What does it talk about? Which objects are necessary and which are optional? Does the audience understand what it is all about? Do we need to explain the meaning of the piece to them? The piece won the Golden Stage Cross as Performing Arts Phenomenon of the year for 2013.
