HANDS DO NOT TOUCH YOUR PRECIOUS ME
A dialogue between the universes of Wim Vandekeybus, Olivier de Sagazan and Charo Calvo
With Hands do not touch your precious Me, WIim Vandekeybus and Olivier de Sagazan creates a mythical tale of confrontation and transformation, light and darkness, death and rebirth. Together they create a word in which bodies balance like living, fleshly sculptures between the utopian and the gruesome, the powerful and the fragile. Vandekeybus developed his movement language based on impulsive and instinctive reactions when confronted with situations of physical risk and danger. At the core of de Sagazan’s work is the transfiguration of the body and the face with clay and paint into a lump of anonymous flesh. Vandekeybus’ and de Sagazan’s exploration of human limits finds a musical echo in the material and physical texture of Charo Calvo’s electroacoustic music.
