Spiegel

World première September 29th 2006 KVS_BOL Brussels (BE)

Twenty years after the première of What the Body Does Not Remember - and almost as many creations with changing international casts later - Wim Vandekeybus composed an evening with some remarkable scenes from his work.

With his dancers Wim Vandekeybus looks in the mirror.  They let themselves be re-inspired and reworked the movement material of his early works as well as more recent productions. No simple collage, but a journey in search of the essence of his movement idiom. A retrospective of the energy and emotions at the base of his creations.
