What the Body Does Not Remember

  • Dance

Time Out says

The surprising debut from Wim Vandekeybus and his company Última Vez back in 1987 shook up the world of dance. In New York, Vandekeybus and composers Thierry de Mey and Peter Vermeersch received the prestigious Bessie Award for their 'brutal confrontation of dance and music: the dangerous, combative landscape of "What the Body Does Not Remember".' The show is now back again touring globally with other performers, 25 years after their first successful run in the Mercat de les Flors. Vandekeybus's original choreography dances on the dangerous line between attraction and repulsion. At times the result is confrontation, first between two dancers, then between two groups, between dancers and music, and between dancers and an intricate and fascinating game of lines drawn and crossed or not. But above all, it's an explosion of aggression, fear and danger.
