De la mesure à la démesure vers le dionysiaque : une étude de l'excès dans l'oeuvre du chorégraphe et cinéaste flamand Wim Vandekeybus : sous l'angle de l'intermédialité et de l'importance grandissante de la visualité

Abstract : Wim Vandekeybus is one of the most important choreographers to the new belgian wave. The purpose of our study it’s to analyze its work in terms of the excess. We study a restraint corpus of works belonging to his choreography and film work. The choreographer ardor of his debut reflected still in its most recent performances such as Blush or Sonic Boom, where the place of the narration is re-evaluated? First of all, we make a focus on the choreographic language’s violence. An emergency’s temporality ordered the performer’s actions. The human relationships are too concerned by this tension, like the relationships between male and female. Then, we take attention to choreographic’s obsession, who research an instinctive behavior. The staging of an exacerbated body pushed into his boundary predominates. Apart from a choreographic research, Wim Vandekeybus is interested in the creation of a stage image, obtained by light creation or introduction of a screen. Confronted to the cinematographic image the body blows up and reaches a Dionysian state. The image of the body in Blush, the movie has the same strength, the same excessive energy, which distinguish his stage. Finally the re-introduction of the narration, by collaborations with contemporary authors, such as Peter Verhelst, P. F. Thomèse or Jan Decorte exacerbates the passions and not achieves to a quiet body.
