After the wonderful ICE, in which choreographer Bahar Temiz retraced the steps of the first polar explorers, she is now turning her gaze upwards. For her latest creation, PUNKT, she takes stories of the first balloon explorers as the starting point for her choreography. Flying initially meant leaving the ground for only a couple of meters and a couple of seconds at a time. But mankind wanted to reach higher and higher. And thus began the immeasurable race upwards ...

New dimensions brought new perspectives. Reaching heights was an evolutionary process in which every ascent made earth look entirely different. Like a colourful, pretty and delicate place. Those who had sailed into infinite space felt a tingling excitement when gazing at their point of departure. The pictures of earth that were taken from the sky had a mythic impact as they allowed us to “take a better look at ourselves, with increasing truth”.

In PUNKT, Bahar Temiz, together with Amanda Barrio Charmelo and Igor Shyshko, walks the lines between dance and visual art. A sophisticated play of highs and lows is set against Pol Matthé’s scenography and to a soundscape by Charo Calvo. Temiz and her team play with perception, push against dimensions and take you into higher spheres.

The PUNKT team would like to welcome you to try-outs on 29 and 30 September 2022. The finished version of PUNKT premieres in January 2023.

Let's imagine

A dot in space that nobody sees
A dot that is gradually dilating
That now, everybody can see
A dot that keeps expanding
A dot that isn’t a dot anymore
But a ball regenerating itself,
that can infinitely expand
Or at any time explode?
