Wim Vandekeybus is coming back to the Grande Halle de La Villette with his show created in 1999 In Spite of Wishing and Wanting. The Flemish choreographer will revisit his hit show which describes a universe without women where 12 men embrace and fight. The choreography, a mix between martial arts and dance is doubled up with a short film and music by David Byrne from the group Talking Heads. Wim Vandekeybus explores the themes of domination, force, body and desire with violence and tenderness, which were already evoked in his show Speak Low if You Speak Love presented at La Villette in 2015.
