Wim Vandekeybus - Body, Body On the Wall

    Directed and choreographed by Jan Fabre and Wim Vandekeybus, sound design by Charo Calvo, in collaboration with Troubleyn, 1997.
    This short film was originally part of the performance Body, body on the wall... (1997), written and directed by Jan Fabre for Wim Vandekeybus. Vandekeybus plays the role of a dancer whose body is manipulated by a female photographer for an exhibition full of imaginary views of the body. Chained to two microphones, Vandekeybus has to obediently allow his body to be painted by a woman, while in a tumultous stream of ideas his body parts are grouped according to the body systems. In the film we see Vandekeybus dancing in an enclosed lavatory. All the alienating elements of the solo are brought up in a brief review. A visual demonstration of the issues dealt with in the monologue.
