Wim Vandekeybus / Ultima Vez



UK Premiere

In TrapTown, choreographer Wim Vandekeybus has created a distinct but unfamiliar world riven by a long-running conflict but where the sparks of freedom are emerging. Joining forces with architect duo Gijs Van Vaerenbergh, he creates a rich dance landscape that continues to look at the universal appeal of myth — an idea his works have continued to investigate since Blush in 2002 and more recently in Oedipus/bêt noir in 2011. Using a variety of artforms – dance, film, spoken word and an original musical score by Trixie Whitley and Phoenician DriveVandekeybus creates a complex and sensational multimedia alternative reality that moves audiences from catharsis to euphoria.
