In the autumn 2001, Ivo Van Hove, director of Toneelgroep Amsterdam, invited Wim Vandekeybus to be a guest-director for this Dutch repertory company. For this unique project, which formerly had the work-title Metamorphosen, Vandekeybus cast three experienced actors from Toneelgroep Amsterdam and eight performers from his own company, Ultima Vez.
Poet and author Peter Verhelst, who has also written texts for the Ultima Vez productions Scratching the Inner Fields and Blush, wrote the text. David Eugene Edwards, known as the singer-songwriter of the American band 16 Horsepower and his solo-project Woven Hand, signs the music. There will also be existing numbers from various artists in the performance’s soundscape.
The departure point for the creation were two completely independent phenomena: sonic booms and night radio.
In Sonic Boom Wim Vandekeybus bridges the gap between gut emotion and imagination, between the physical and verbal, between images and stories, between dance and theater.
