Wim Vandekeybus / Ultima Vez – TrapTown

The imperative nature of the myth lies in its ability to bring clarity to the mechanisms of a classical conflict. Not by what the myth shows us, but by what it does not show. Without the everyday noise of news reports and opinion pieces, the view shown in the myth offers an insight into ancient souls. It is our archaic character that finds it impossible to become modern and raises hell. Wim Vandekeybus’ fascination for the universal nature of ancient myths was already demonstrated in the figures of Orpheus and Eurydice in Blush (2002). His new creation, TrapTown, takes you to a parallel universe, stripped of defined time and space. Primal conflicts dominate and the necessity and (im)possibility of emancipation rises to the surface.
