From the 29th of January to the 1st of February, the renowned Belgian choreographer and his company, Ultima Vez, will present the piece that catapulted them to fame in 1987
In 1987, a young Belgian choreographer, Win Vandekeybus, director of the Belgian dance company Última Vez, inaugurated a production entitled What the Body Does Not Remember, a choreographed production that walked a tightrope between attraction and repulsion. The same year, in New York, the explosive fusion of fear, anger and dance would be the proud winner of the prestigious Bessie Award.
Twenty-five years after a debut that almost immediately catapulted the young choreographer to stardom, Vandekeybus returns to this piece from the earliest days of his career. Beginning on the 29th of January, the Mercat de les Flors will play host to a production which, using numerous interpreters, still revolves around the concepts of danger, aggression and confrontation, all staged between two dancers, between two groups of dancers, between the dancers and the music, and between the dancers and a compelling series of lines painted on the stage.
A major reference point for international dance, Win Vandekeybus’s creations combine painting, photography, theatre, movement and music. His work also includes film and video-dance and his catalogue also includes classical mythology, photography, montages with young people with whom he has never previously mixed and other primarily musical performances. This multi-disciplinary tendency reveals Vandekeybus’s constant desire for innovation, a desire which, throughout his career, has led him to constantly seek new forms of expression.
