on a slice of future
‘To tell your own story is near impossible, it can only be told by those close to you,’ reads a famous
quote from Hannah Arendt. 35 years ago, Ultima Vez’s first production, What the Body Does Not
Remember, premiered in Haarlem. At the crossroads of past and future, Wim Vandekeybus looks
back and forward in the special anniversary project Scattered Memories, with a large cast of different
generations of Ultima Vez dancers.
A collaboration by 30CC and STUK.
