Music Wim Vandekeybus - Menske Sunday 23 December 2007
We went to see a modern dance performance choreographed by Wim Vandekeybus called Menske. It was the first time I went to see something like this, but I had high expectations because I once saw a movie of a dance performance choreographed by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and really loved it, and Wim Vandekeybus is just as famous.

Unfortunately this performance was mostly a piece of painfully arty-farty theatre with less than 1/4 of the time spent actually dancing. The dancing itself was quite cool to watch and full of ingenious symbolism, but it was never impressive and certainly not interesting enough to make up for the excruciatingly boring and lengthy dialogues in between. The best thing about the whole show was the music by Daan, who reworked some songs of his band Dead Man Ray. 4/10
