In the mechanisms of classical conflict, myths often create clarity. If we omit the daily noise of news reports and opinions, myths can offer insights into humankind’s tragic actions. In Blush(2002), we saw Vandekeybus’ fascination with the universal power of ancient myths through the figures of Orpheus and Eurydice. His new creation, TrapTown, takes you to a parallel universe stripped of defined time and space. Primary conflicts dominate; the necessity, possibility, and impossibility of emancipation are imminent. Texts by Pieter De Buysser inform this dance mythology. A cinematic soundtrack by Trixie Whitley and the Brussels band Phoenician Drive, which transports the audience through oracles, melancholy, purification and euphoria, enhances the performance.
