Infamous Offspring (c) Wim Vandekeybus

INFAMOUS OFFSPRING is a fictional dance/film/theatre piece inspired by Greek characters. About a PATCHWORK FAMILY whose parents are iconic musicians and the descendants are a group of notorious but sensitive dancers. INFAMOUS OFFSPRING harks back to the stories of Greek mythology, family soaps and archetypal stories about the dysfunctional family around the gods. Primeval stories about parents and children. About power, seduction, aggression, humiliation, exclusion, manipulation, beauty, cunning, … Ancient stories that traveled through time through transmission create a recognizable hierarchy of contemporary parents versus their children.
