In the mechanisms of classical conflict, myths often create clarity. If we omit the daily noise of news reports and opinions, myths can offer insights into humankind’s tragic actions. In his new creation Vandekeybus takes you to a parallel, mythological universe dominated by primary conflicts. Texts by Pieter De Buysser inform this dance mythology. A cinematic soundtrack by Trixie Whitley and the Brussels band Phoenician Drive, which transports the audience through oracles, melancholy, purification and euphoria, enhances the performance.
