YEAR OF PRODUCTION 1997
This short film was originally part of the monologue Body, body on the wall… (1997), written and directed by Jan Fabre for Wim Vandekeybus.
Vandekeybus plays the role of a dancer whose body is manipulated by a female photographer. Chained to two microphones, Vandekeybus’ body is painted by a woman, while in a tumultuous stream of ideas his body parts are grouped according to the body systems. In the film we see Vandekeybus dancing in an enclosed lavatory. All the alienating elements of the solo are brought up in a brief review. A visual demonstration of the issues dealt with in the monologue.
