In the frame of the series Choreographers On New Tracks

23 - 24 MAY 2014.

TRAFÓ15, | NEW TRACKS

POST-SHOW DISCUSSION
On 23 May after the performance Wim Vandekeybus choreographer and Máté Mészáros movement assistant of the performance are talking in public with Szilvia Sisso Artner journalist, critic and György Szabó managing director of Trafó. The discussion will be about the road of Ultima Vez that led from What the body does not remember to booty Looting and about  the future, education and inheritance of the company represented in the choreography of Máté Mészáros (to be presented in October 2014, in Trafó). In English with Hungarian translation. Everybody is welcome!
 


For booty Looting Wim Vandekeybus has composed a group of six performers, one musician and one photographer. Music, movement, spoken word and photography are on an equal footing with each other. Every medium adds something or erases something.
 
In booty Looting photography is a means that enables Vandekeybus to talk about memory. Wim Vandekeybus: “Memories are often created or distorted on the basis of photographs. Proust once accused the visual memory of actually erasing memories. Taste and touch are much more sensitive, but the visual is dominant. Which is why you can perfectly well remember things you have never experienced, simply because you have seen pictures of them.”
 
The title booty Looting is intended to point to this process of distorting the memory. booty Looting refers to a double form of plundering: the plundering of what has already been plundered, stealing what was already stolen, looting the booty. Wim Vandekeybus: “booty Looting is a highly individual piece. The audience will have to get involved and will have to imagine things. And who knows, it may itself occasionally feel it has been robbed.”
