What the Body Does Not Remember - T1986893846

The amazing debut of Wim Vandekeybus and Ultima Vez in 1987 stunned the world of dance at the time. Vandekeybus and composers Thierry de Mey and Peter Vermeersch received the prestigious Bessie Award in New York for this ?brutal confrontation of dance and music: the dangerous, combative landscape of What the Body Does Not Remember.' 28 years later and with a new cast, the show still stands as one of the most exciting pieces of dance ever made and is once again on an unmissable world tour. Vandekeybus' first piece of choreography balances on the razor edge of attraction and repulsion. Dancers are driven to act and react at high speed and with split second timing, to each other, and the music. Moments of humour thread through explosions of aggression, fear and danger in this adrenaline-fuelled distinctly physical performance.Presented byDance Touring Partnership.

Ultima Vez - T1916679222

Fast, restless, instinctive movements play a central role in the work of Belgian choreographer-filmmaker Wim Vandekeybus. He creates dance that is so aggressive and full of adrenaline, it transforms the stage into a battlefield. His latest production, booty Looting, involves six performers, a musician and photographer. In it all elements - music, movement, spoken word and photography - play an equal role. Belgium newspaper De Standaard describes the production as 'a choreographic work full of blood, sweat and electricity... the performers race across the stage like panting coyotes to the rumbling of Bliweert's electric guitar. The photographer skips like a consummate paparazzo amongst them.' The ever-imaginative creative of these '100,000 volt' choreographer often take their inspiration from mythical figures and stories. In booty looting, Vandekeybus leads us through tales of plundering, Medea and death by Xerox machine, along the way exploring notions of creation, destruction, memory and distortion. A picture kills the present and freezes the past. Memories take root in these frozen moments and grow.

Blush - T01594991957

Wild rock music by David Eugene Edwards and words from Peter Verhelst, form the background to an avalanche of images. A woman makes love to a man as he snores. An immense wall of bags is constructed, then brutally crushes two dancers. Diving from the stage into the screen, dancers seamlessly reappear on film, transformed into water-nymphs in an underwater netherworld. WebsiteChoreographer Wim Vandekeybus. Music David Eugene Edwards. Lyrics Peter Verhelst. Director Wim Vandedeybus.
