Choreography: Wim Vandekeybus

How much can you sacrifice for power or truth? What is a life worth? And who is without guilt? PUUR is a story about a man who murders for fear of losing his hold on power. A story about living in isolation and alienation, but also about losing something irreplaceable and the terrible pain it brings. A story about fear of the unknown, about guilt and responsibility.

Choreographer Wim Vandekeybus has created a modern dance performance that revolves around the killing of innocents. Inspired by ancient myths and modern portrayals. From Herod to present-day genocides. A timeless and universal interpretation, which, paired with Wovenhand’s suggestive music and powerful projections, doesn’t let the audience relax for so much as a moment. PUUR’s world premiere was put on by Vandekeybus’ company Ultima Vez at the Singapore Arts Festival on 27 May 2005.
