Radical Wrong

World Premiere March 5th 2011, Cultuurcentrum Hasselt, Hasselt (BE)

In the antiperformance RADICAL WRONG the choreographer and film-maker wants to appeal above all to today's vibrant young people. The tempo is scorching hot. There's no point in hiding. With RADICAL WRONG Wim Vandekeybus wanted to create a performance which actually isn't a performance or at least doesn't want to pretend to be one. RADICAL WRONG is constantly looking for an identity without being afraid to make mistakes. And that's probably its strength.

Wim Vandekeybus: “They can all say it sucks! The rebellious spirit of teenagers means a lot more to me then the opinion of the establishment who tells them how it is done and what to think about it. In a sense RADICAL WRONG is a serious test for me. I destroy myself – it is a performance in which I no longer exist."
