Premiere Co-production "Tornar" by Seppe Baeyens

Premiere Co-production "Tornar" by Seppe Baeyens

The dancer and choreographer Seppe Baeyens has been closely involved in the activities for children and adolescents at Ultima Vez since 2011. He opts expressly to enter into dialogue with these children and The (Im)possible Friendship of Stef and Augustijn (Kopergietery) were much acclaimed in Belgium and abroad.

Under the wing of Ultima Vez and Wim Vandekeybus, Seppe Baeyens is now creating his first large-scale dance production. It is called "Tornar" and tells the story of people left after the passage of a tornado who are trying to rebuild a community. The movement of the devastating tornado is a metaphor for the crumbling solidarity between generations.

In "Tonar", Seppe Baeyens sets up an interaction between a variety of professional and amateur dancers of different generations. He selected this varied group in the course of a long process workshops and encounters at the Ultima Vez studio in Sint-Jans-Molenbeek. The performers are four children, two adolescents, three dancers, a 91-year old man and a musician.
