"Vandekeybus brought into focus a whole new genre of modern dance...Combat rolls, breakneck sprints and savagely wrestled duets became the defining vocabulary of a new generation." The Guardian. In 2016, Wim Vandekeybus' company Ultima Vez celebrates its 30th birthday. Never before has his oeuvre been recorded in a book. Until now. This extraordinary book is a visual trip through the most powerful images from his repertoire, a quest for the ideas and themes that inspire him. It aso contains unpublished texts, notes and scripts from his shows and films. A number of compagnons de route, such as David Byrne, Mauro Pawlowski, and Peter Verhelst, offer a personal textual contribution. Choreographer, filmmaker and photographer Wim Vandekeybus and his company Ultima Vez are at the top of the dance industry in Belgium - and around the world. After a cooperation with Jan Fabre, Vandekeybus founded his very own company Ultima Vez in 1986. His first performance, What the Body Does Not Remember (1987), was an international success and was awarded a Bessie Award (New York Dance and Performance Award), a prize awarded for pioneering work.
