10 ARTISTS

With a Guest Programmer, we choose 10 artists who inspire us and match them in 5 unusual pairs…a comedian and a ballet dancer; a poet and a punk cellist; a sculptor and a puppeteer.

2 WEEKS

The artists meet their partner for the first time 2 weeks before the show. They have never worked together before.

5 NEW WORKS

The only criteria is that each pair perform a new collaborative work.

1 SHOW

The end result is always a surprise, for everyone.
