"Les porteuses de mauvaises nouvelles" The dancers exert themselves to the point of exhaustion, until their overwhelming instinctiveness and animality burst out of them full speed. Darts fly through the air, performers become missiles, fall to the ground, react in a split second and performers jump into each other’s arms. That is Wim Vandekeybus’ choreography, who has taken his piece “Les porteuses de mauvaises nouvelles” (1989) and reworked it with the Portuguese Companhia Instável. This fascinating early piece from his early work validates Vandekeybus’ fame while maintaining the entirety of its verve. Having received bad news, the dancers are fired up and give an unparalleled, supreme performance. The dancers are pushed not to shy away from any risks and today still elicits thunderous applause.
