In 1986 Wim Vandekeybus founded Ultima Vez. Since then this outstanding company has been at the forefront of dance theatre, consistently astounding audiences worldwide. Vandekeybus’ work pushes dancers beyond their limits in a powerful fusion of live action, film and music that seethes with energy, danger, emotion and sensuality.
To celebrate twenty years, Wim Vandekeybus has composed Spiegel (Mirror), an evening featuring some of the most remarkable scenes from his early work as well as more recent productions. The master of movement, uses nine dancers to press the limits of physical possibility. Flirting with danger they strive to make sense of the world through daring movement sometimes more animal than human. Not for the fainthearted – the result is powerful and erotic. Vandekeybus’ dramatic movement is woven together with music by composers such as David Byrne and Thierry de Mey.
