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 Ultima Vez universe from Laura’s personal experience after spending a decade as a performer in the company and still collaborating with Wim Vandekeybus as a movement coach and assistant choreographer. Some concepts and ideas of several creations are explored to embody energetic physical language of the company – a taste of Ultima Vez’ work.
