SYZYGY of Jakop Ahlbom Company
With SYZYGY, Jakop Ahlbom Company expresses creatural and emotional themes regarding a given both simple yet intricately complex: the human body.
It is our most powerful and at the same time vulnerable possession, and for some, be it deliberately or forced, a complete obsession. How do media and culture influence our self-image, and are we capable of accepting change? With so many physical possibilities within reach, where do we draw a line? What even is beauty?

Eternity of Theater Rotterdam/Davy Pieters
We humans desire more time, more space and a healthier life. Progress is being made: we live longer and we are getting better at controlling diseases. We're looking into the possibility of immortality. But what does it mean to live forever? What does it mean to live in a body that stays young, but has a spirit which continues to get older?
In her latest show, Eternity, Davy Pieters investigates the ultimate consequence of immortality. Using fysical and visual techniques, she displays the emotional impact brought about by striving for an eternal life.
How does one move, having lived for a hundred years, having seen generations come and go? What does one think of, dream of, how does one love, and what does one laugh and talk about? After How to build a Universe, Davy Pieters continues putting universal questions to life in her performance Eternity. Jimi Zoet will add a new dimension to her universe with his electronic soundscapes.
