Ultima Vez 25 Year Celebrations, Brussels

Posted on December 8, 2012

A visit to the new studios in Molenbeek, Brussels of Wim Vandekybus’ company Ultima Vez. I invited Wim to Critical Path back in 2004 and have kept up correspondence with producer Kristien de Coster in particular since then. It was great to see them ensconced in their very spacious studios in time to celebrate their quarter century. Also resident there are SOIT and Peeping Tom, two other Brussels institutions whose work I really admire. I took the kids to the workshop run by Seppe Baeyens and we enjoyed 90 minutes of creative “planking”. Seppe was a very warm and encouraging teacher who made us all want to shine and I felt quite touched to see us all there, all ages, shapes and sizes on a zero degree morning. There was also a band, some films and further workshops and rehearsals during the day. A very inspiring moment.
