Wim Vandekeybus/Ultima Vez – Blush (Belgium, 2014)
52 minutes | Segal Theatre
Multiple languages with English subtitles
Blush, by Belgian choreographer Wim Vandekeybus, is an exploration of the savage subconscious and of conflicting instincts. In dance sequences of attraction, confrontation and repulsion the performers take on animal metamorphoses. Carried by the music of David Eugene Edwards, Blush is a dazzling voyage swinging between the heavenly landscapes of Corsica and the slummiest depths of Brussels.
Wim Vandekeybus/ Ultima Vez (born 1963) is a Belgian director and choreographer. in 1986, he moved to Madrid with a group of young, inexperienced dancers and founded his company Ultima Vez. His first show, What the Body Does Not Remember, was an international success, earning him a Bessie Award for its innovation. After 30 years and many works for film, Vandekeybus is still searching for novelty and innovation. In his all his productions he remains true to his original concepts for movement: tension, conflict, body versus mind, risks, impulses, physicality, passion, intuition, and instinct. These essential elements will always be part of Vandekeybus’ work–on each occasion they emerge in a radically new appearance.
