"Spiegel" In 1986 a Flemish choreographer by the name of Wim Vandekeybus travelled with a group of young dancers to Madrid for a few months. The result was a new company “Ultima Vez” – the last time – and the legendary work “What the Body Does Not Remember” (1987). Twenty years later Vandekeybus wants to look himself in the face once more using a choreographic “Mirror”. He remembers, for example, the revolution implied in the brick throwing in “What the Body Does Not Remember”. Real danger on stage. Dancers threw bricks on stage and remained there until someone came to save them, pushed them away and caught the bricks. Since then the art of throwing oneself and other people into the battle of pulsating dance has been played through in 20 productions. Important sequences from some of the older works will be shown once again in “Mirror”. “Mirror” is not a “best of” album but a new, adventurous journey into “imaginary catastrophes”. The dancers from then are mirrored now in a new, younger troop. And the bricks have been replaced by more practical blocks of lime. Does the risk inhabit memory or the repetition? The risk lies in dancing without rest, as if it was the last time once again.
