“Le beau est toujours bizarre” with Ballett Theater Basel

From black swan to tantalising tango to fiery flamenco – the dancers of Theater Basel take their audience on a journey into a strange and erotic, dark dreamscape.

From black swan to tantalising tango to fiery flamenco – the dancers of Theater Basel take their audience on a journey into a strange and erotic, dark dreamscape.

In the spirit of Charles Baudelaire’s motto “Le beau est toujours bizarre”, choreographer and ballet director Richard Wherlock creates a panopticon of dance fantasies full of contradictions and sensual turmoil, in which existential and universal themes such as love, lust, ecstasy and melancholia find their expression.

March, 3: SOLD OUT

The Cocktaileers will thus devote a full evening to absinthe-based cocktail creations.

The figure of the absinthe drinker inspired many artists, including Picasso during his Blue Period – the so-called “green fairy” is a recurrent theme of fin-de-siècle painting and literature, as exemplified among others by Édouard Manet, Charles Baudelaire, Edgar Degas and Vincent van Gogh.

Rudolf Stingel

The Fondation Beyeler will devote its summer exhibition 2019 to contemporary painter Rudolf Stingel (born in 1956 in Merano, Italy, he lives and works in New York and Merano).

The Fondation Beyeler will devote its summer exhibition 2019 to contemporary painter Rudolf Stingel (born in 1956 in Merano, Italy, he lives and works in New York and Merano).

Like few other artists, he probes and interrogates the status quo of painting. From his very beginnings in the late 1980s, Rudolf Stingel has approached painting in a conceptual and self-reflexive manner, exploring its possibilities and media-specific limits through the interplay of artistic strategies, materials and shapes. Alongside various series of abstract and photorealistic paintings, he creates large-scale works made of styrofoam, cast wall hangings, as well as participative spaces covered in carpets or insulation foil that may be touched and treaded on. His works manifest both the random traces of time and deliberately placed references to their own process of production.
