Fraudulent Smile is choreographed by Ross Freddie Ray to music by KROKE. Paradox and Sacr have both been choreographed by Japanese dancer and choreographer Yuka Oishi. Paradox is performed to music by Stravinsky (Soldier's Tale) and Chopin. Sacr is a piece of tanztheater set to Stravinsky's iconic The Rite of Spring. Both Paradox and Sacr explore aspects of the life of famous dancer Vaslav Nijinsky in his 130th birthday year, with Sacr reinterpreting his infamous ballet Le Sacre du Printemps, originally created for Ballets Russes in 1913. The ballets are inspired by Nijinsky's demand for a feeling, not thinking Human , by masterpieces of the Art Brut - the movement of the outsider art, by the essence of rebellion.

The world premiere of Rasputin is also choreographed by Yuka Oishi, with a new score by Russia's most prominent representative of the neoclassical music scene, Kirill Richter, and set design by Otto Bubenicek. Rasputin, a two-act dance drama, explores the life of the Russian mystic and self-proclaimed holy man who befriended the family of Tsar Nicholas II.
