In times dominated by visual inputs or perfection and beauty in the media, 'passing' as able accentuates self-conflicted stigma and perpetuity anxieties related to symptoms of discrimination and isolation.
QueerAble adaptations is a vulnerable encounter that reclaims space to other expires. It articulates utterance and sonic flows produced by a device as an extension of the body, a sound instrument that amplifies the resonance of a non-normalized (free) movement.

In the age of A.I. with communicating internet bots, algorithms leading our search engines and heavily influencing our access to information and world’s view, is a performer still an essential part of the performance?
No-One Show is partly a 360° film, and partly a live performance. The film is a completely immersive experience, viewed through VR headset and headphones. After that there is a live interactive part performed with the same actor, who urges the audience to take off their VR headset and headphones and, through various activities with each other, make people connect on a basic level.

Lurings is a hybrid installation weaving through the forms of movement, puppetry, choreographic objects, and live electronics. With the accentuated need to connect within the imposed limitations of today’s world, this installation offers a way of distance participation.
A series of composed objects are suspended with strings in space and interact with an object on the floor creating a 3rd affect. Every movement of the string produces pre-curated electronic sounds. These objects are activated from the other end of the string from a distance by the audience, creating a rhythmic play on sensorial qualities with visuals and sounds.

Promises is an invitation to take a closer look at promises as game-changers in our individual and collective takes on life.
It offers a different perspective to the usual meaning of the word, or so to say, an extended one: promise as the intertwining of faith and desire, a formula (promise = desire + faith) we use to cope with things we can the fully grass.
What do we wake up for every day?

What is communication? Movement, text, voice, body language, touch, sender, receiver, channel, coding, decoding. Reaching a mutual understanding. We all have a desperate desire to share, to be heard and understood. To not be alone. From the impotence of communication, Unmute narrates the journey of a body eager to communicate with the outside world and the learning experience acquired from interacting with different others in the process of realising how to be heard.
"Every sound is born out of silence. Dies back into silence. Enduring its life spent is surrounded by silence. Silence enable the sound to be. It is an intrinsic but un-manifested part of every sound, every musical note, every song, every word. […] just as no sound can exist without silence, nothing can exist without no thing. Without the empty space that enables it to be. Everybody pays attention to the things in the space, but who pays attention to space it self?" E. Tolle
