Ultima Vez Vocabulary – Space, conflict and catastrophic imagination
"In the performances of Vandekeybus the body is at stake in a world of conflict. It is an arena of tensions and contrast: horizontal/vertical, high/low, hard/soft, virtuosity/vulnerability, active/passive, man/woman, body/mind, man/animal, order/chaos, intellect/instinct, nature/civilisation, etc. On the basis of these types of contrasts where formal, physical and existential categories overlap." – Erwin Jans
This workshop will approach the work of Ultima Vez from Laura’s personal experience with the company. We will explore some themes of different creations and some of the energetic physical vocabulary from Wim Vandekeybus and his troupe; a taste and flavour of Ultima Vez work.
