2014: Bal Pare (Niki Liszta)

Bal pare as a humorous look at the Vienna Opera Ball and the other big balls in our history. The piece reflects the microcosm of a society in which distrust and fairness act as antagonists. A grotesque with realistic-looking debutants who want to present themselves from their best and most beautiful side. No matter what it costs. It mercilessly shows the ruins of a society and the unfulfilled needs of a mass determined by cliché and etiquette. Who is the victim And who is responsible if someone goes down?

2013: Viewpoint (Christina Mertzani)

A playful and physical research. Like a journey from birth, discovering games, directions and relationships.Moments of meeting followed by those of parting. Almost animal like.A view from one point on many different constellations and situations.

2008: Eye see (Deborah Smith-Wicke)

A piece about seeing and being seen.
One single moment. To be lost in the deepness of a gaze. To be swallowed by your observer. A horror. Are our eyes really the mirror of our soul? Do they tell us the truth and can we find honesty and sincerity?
The ideal neutral eye contact in middle Europe is an average of 1/6 of a second. Longer as 3 seconds, and stress is felt. The “look” of a person can cause pain.

2010: f2f (Michael Langeneckert)

A network without personal relationships, without responsibilities. Digital communication increases whilst face to face meeting and sharing becomes less and less. How do these changes have an effect on our physical and psychological wellbeing?
