Little body on the wall ...

World Premiere April 21st 1997 Springdance Utrecht (NL)

Little body on the wall… is part of Jan Fabre’s series of solo performances entitled The Four Temperaments: four evening-long solos made for and with dancers with whom Fabre has collaborated artistically in the past: Wim Vandekeybus, Renée Copraij, Marc Vanrunxt and Annamirl Van der Pluijm.

The theatre monologue that Jan Fabre wrote for Wim Vandekeybus is about the relation between a male dancer and a photographer: a metaphor for the relation between a performer and the public. The central idea is that we only become aware of our body from the looks that other people give it.

For this monologue Fabre was inspired by the Dutch painter Rob Scholte, the French performance artist Orlan and interviews with Wim Vandekeybus himself.
