There’s something terribly sexy when it starts talking to you, as if you were the only person in the room. In this case the ‘it’ is NEXT, a selection of young dancers, musicians and acting companies from the 2010s. The future is theirs and, as we can see from the cue in front of the cashier, the future is now! They’re doing something entirely different than the legendary veterans: they have different views on you, themselves and everything else that surrounds us. Is it a generational issue or just the spirit of the age? If you ask us: it makes no difference. Here is a list of nine performances which have a different take on the world and you, something that differs from what you’re used to. It leaves you cold or becomes your accomplice, asks a few questions and then cuts you short – but it sure won’t let you rest.
