Hans Van den Broeck / Cie SOIT

The Lee Ellroy Show

Her murderer has never been found. The mother of American crime fiction writer James Ellroy, author of such groundbreaking works as The Black Dahlia, L. A. Confidential or My Dark Places, met her violent death in the 1950ies on a shabby street in the outskirts of Los Angeles. The renowned choreographer Hans Van den Broeck converts the obsessions trig- gered by that loss into a grim and magical David-Lynch-like scenario. This wild, energetic duet and its remarkable sound unfold the effects of the agonizing trauma for the victim's son caused by the crime.
