Choreograaf Wim Vandekeybus slaagt er telkens in om met een minimum aan theatrale middelen gewaagde thema’s te vatten in prachtige beelden. Voor In Spite of Wishing and Wanting ontdoet hij iconen van dromen en verlangens van psychoanalytische clichés en zet ze om in spectaculaire en poëtische danstaal. De voorstelling is een krachtige symbiose tussen dans, theater en film. Bezwerende danssequenties, ondersteund door de sensuele soundtrack van David Byrne, vloeien over in monologen over angst, verlangen naar geborgenheid en de magie van de slaap.

In Spite of Wishing and Wanting (theatre trip to Hasselt) 

World première March 12th 1999, Teatro Communale di Ferrara, (I)

In 1999, In Spite of Wishing and Wanting caused a huge stir. For the first time, Wim Vandekeybus created a performance not about the chemistry between men and women, but a primal desire in a world of men alone – fierce, wild, naive and playful. Spellbinding footage and dance sequences, supported by David Byrne’s sensual soundtrack, flow into monologues about fear, a desire for security and the magic of sleep. In 2016 a completely new cast takes on the challenge of this world hit.

The fear of being possessed by something or someone also has its reverse side: the longing to change into something or someone else. Fear and desire circle around the same core. This desire to transform is the central theme of In Spite of Wishing and Wanting.

Two short stories, one by Julio Cortazar and one by Paul Bowles, have been haunting Wim Vandekeybus for a while now. In both short stories the focus is on the movement between the familiar and the foreign, a movement that can never be resolved. These two short stories inspired Wim Vandekeybus while shooting the short film that is part of the performance.
