What the Body Does Not Remember stunned audiences when it premiered in 1987. This first work from Wim Vandekeybus and Ultima Vez created a new landscape for dance.
25 years on, the revival of this essential, gripping work comes to the Abbey stage for three nights only.
A theatrical score by Thierry de Mey and Peter Vermeersch drives relentless, risky choreography – this is not normal body language. Bricks are hurled across the stage, bodies collide in mid-air. Instinct takes over and trust is everything in this dangerous, combative environment.
What the Body Does Not Remember is presented by Dublin Dance Festival in association with the Abbey Theatre.
‘Tough, brutal, playful, ironic and terrific. Adjectives seem unduly passive in describing What the Body Does Not Remember’ – The New York Times
