The Heiber family lives in a world that's rapidly crumbling, plagued by flawed and outdated social and political models. Meanwhile a group of aristocrats, led by Helmut Ronen, is creating the perfect city as the answer to all society's problems: RONENSBOURGH.
Ronensbourgh is a very contemporary and highly experimental piece, written in a Heiner Müller's style. The play possesses relevant questions about identity, society and home; about the conception of those ideas, and the dislodging of the very things our society holds as important.

World premiere of Night (Thyestes 2.0), a movement theatre piece written by Charles L. Mee and directed and designed by Ildiko Nemeth with projection design and visuals by Laia Cabrera and Isabelle Duverger. Inspired by Seneca's Thyestes, the piece combines sections of the classic tale with an equally dark modern vision. A whirlwind of vivid scenes bridges the torture, murder and cannibalism dogging ill-fated Tantalus to modern plagues both frightening and banal, from war crimes to YouTube vapidity. This world premiere performance brings a bold mix of standout visuals and video installations, choreography, costuming, lighting and sound to Mee’s rhapsodic vision, resulting in a night of wonderfully disorienting theatre.

Erna (Ragini Bhaumik), the career driven Master of Business graduate turned housewife and mother; her friend Brigitte (Margi Douglas), proud owner of a designer store; Andreas (Brady Kirchberg), Erna's boyfriend who loves the outdoors and Reinhardt (Markus Hirnigel) the neoconservative businessman.

La jaula bajo el trapo (multimedia theater play), 2008
A play by Maria Negroni. 30 minutes
This play comes from a poem in dialogue that presents the loving duel to death between a mother and her daughter. Their interaction is represented, however,
as the daughter’s recollections of disquieting images, emotions and passions repressed by her conscience, a relentless guard. The mental space is intervened by the voice
of a man that brings the external world into the scene in the form of a a radio emission with fragments of the urban life and quotes of both high and popular culture.

and directed by Maria Litvan
Music and Sound design by Laia Cabrera
"Borderline is entering into an imaginary space in which everything "is the truth and nothing more than the truth," but at the same time "it is all a lie." It is a journey in which there are no clear limits, time and space are all at once (there is no past, no present, no future, no here, no there). It is a journey in which the human need to organize and understand things is left without explanatory cues; it is then when we are free to interpret it as we want or as we need; maybe as we do in "real" life." Maria Litvan
