Ultima Vez (BE)

INVITED is dancer and choreographer Seppe Baeyens’ artistic response to how the audience can help determine the choreography of a show. Through the wordless language of dance, he hopes to create a community, despite his limited time and space, by blurring the boundaries between cast and audience.

Performers of all ages, who together reflect today’s society, literally invite the audience to help shape the performance. The scenography unites and divides, becomes visible and invisible, and guides the audience and the performers through the collective story.

Seppe Baeyens has been closely affiliated with Ultima Vez since 2011. Under the wing of Wim Vandekeybus, he created his first major dance performance – Tornar – in 2015 with an intergenerational cast of professional and amateur dancers. Tonar received a lot of praise at home and abroad, and was selected for the Theaterfestival 2015.
