Wim Vandekeybus / Ultima Vez

Infamous Offspring

STUK with 30CC

For his new creation Infamous Offspring, Wim Vandekeybus reverts to Greek mythology, family soaps and archetypal stories about the dysfunctional family around the god couple Zeus and Hera. Primeval tales about parents and children are processed in dance, text, music and film into a fascinating web of contemporary stories about jealousy, cruelty, exclusion and longing for respect and recognition.

The parents in Infamous Offspring are filmed characters interacting with their nine-headed offspring on stage. Flamenco icon Israel Galván plays the best friend of the family and communicates only through his rhythmic body expression.

British poet Fiona Benson - known for her fierce, ecstatic poems and dark imagination - translates ancient myths into contemporary society, mixing solemnity and lyricism in the interplay between film and stage.

Infamous Offspring is a world of energies, forces and emotions colliding, in which the tensions of today's world shine through.
