Wim Vandekeybus b. 1963
Roseland (1990)
Duration: 46 minutes

The video film Roseland, directed by Walter Verdin, Octavio Iturbe and Wim Vandekeybus, is made from the material of Vandekeybus' first three choreographies: What the Body Does Not Remember (1987), Les porteuses de mauvaises nouvelles (1989) and The Weight of a Hand (1990). Roseland places these choreographic works in the remarkable setting of a dilapidated Brussels cinema which has been abandoned for the past twenty years. Roseland received the Dance Screen Award for ‘transforming the theatrical energy of the stage choreography into a dynamic screen experience, using a full range of cinematic techniques.'
