WORLD PREMIERE December 8th 2019 at December Dance/Concertgebouw Bruges (in the context of Europalia Romania)
In TRACES Wim Vandekeybus follows the traces he has left. He looks back on the intuitions from where his search began: to the drama of impulses and instincts; to the game of energies and intensities. Vandekeybus searches for traces that are older than mankind and his memory. For ‘the inner story’, for the story that unfolds beyond language and can only be told in the pulses of dance and music. The music is composed by Trixie Whitley, Marc Ribot, Shahzad Ismaily, Ben Perowsky and Daniel Mintseris.
