More information

Luxembourg audiences are very familiar with Koen Augustijnen and his works. This time, four choreographers and four musicians, with different artistic experiences and ideas, coming from different continents, cultures, and countries, are meeting onstage over a banquet of food. They talk, drink, laugh, dance, and prepare food together. A simple meeting that is a starting point to a more complex choreographic and conceptual performance structure. Beytna is an invitation into the home of another, it is also the artist's professional and choreographical construction. It is an invitation that confirms diversity, touches on forms and situations of the past, and searches for a new rhythm, pattern, and logic.

"With good friends ... and good food on the board ... we may well ask, when shall we live if not now?" M.F.K. Fisher, The Art of Eating.
