This year’s 4+4 Days in Motion features numerous remarkable foreign theatre performances and choreographies offering a look at current social issues as well as humor and entertainment.

The documentary theatre performance AlexisGreek Tragedy, presented by Italy’s famed MOTUS ensemble, reaffirms the notion that theatre is a kind of litmus test for society in terms of both political engagement as well as poetic imagination. A modern interpretation of Antigone, the ensemble’s latest performance, Alexis, Greek Tragedy, explores the tragic images from and youth rebellion in contemporary Greece. Motus has received numerous prestigious awards throughout the world, and Quebec’s Association of Theatre Critics named Alexis, Greek Tragedy the best foreign play of the 2011/12 season.

The internationally successful Indian dance ensemble ATTAKKALARI CENTRE FOR MOVEMENT ARTS is one of India’s most progressive artistic dance ensembles. Their performance AadhaaraChakra a Dancelogue presents an original audio and cinematic dance excursion into an imaginary world of Indian villages, marketplaces, and busy city streets. A collective and ritual experience, the performance uses memories and images across time and space to create an extraordinary visual spectacle presenting a conflict between the perception of traditional and contemporary dance that may seem senseless to “Western civilization”. This is the first ever performance by an Indian ensemble at 4+4 Days in Motion.

VICTOR, a choreography produced by Belgium’s famed CAMPO theatre ensemble, is the first artistic collaboration between the exceptional artists Jan Martens and Peter Seynaeve. In this intimate dance duet for a man and a child, one has a long journey behind him while the other yearns to be an adult as quickly as possible. It is a fragile game of muscles and a power play of unequal possibilities, a small story about large and honorable things, about strength and innocence, but above all about yearning for closeness.

Since being founded in 1999, the international art collective SUPERAMAS has traveled the entire world with its highly original art projects offering a brilliant combination of original film, choreography, theatre, soap opera, and live music. In its latest project, THEATRE, Superamas explores the intersection between the artistic viewpoint of Renaissance painters and that of the 21st century’s pioneers in 3D technology. The project’s authentic and fictional stories, set in an imaginary world and combining reality with virtual reality, are a return to and comedial reflection of the “Arab vs. Western” view of the world.

Each year, the festival also contributes to the creation of new projects, whose premieres form an integral part of the festival’s program. This year, the festival will present premieres by progressive Czech ensembles and artists such as 420 PEOPLEVERTE DANCEVOSTO5SECONDHAND WOMANLUCIE KAŠIÁROVÁ & VANDA HYBNEROVÁ and ŽAN LOOSE.
