by: Wim Vandekeybus

Direction and choreography: Wim Vandekeybus

Production: Ultima Vez (BE)

Wim Vandekeybus follows the traces he has left. He looks back on the intuitions from whence his search began: to the drama of impulses and instincts; to the game of energies and intensities. In the Romanian nature, with Europe's last primaeval forests, Vandekeybus searches for traces that are older than man and his memory. 

It is a search for traces of nature that the body has forgotten or repressed. How much nature still lives in human mankind? How much animal in the human body? What happens when at risk or in danger, we have to take intuitive decisions to survive?
