Very often, the person who brings news – good or bad – feels an emotional charge more intense than the person for whom it is destined... Created in 1989, and revived this year with a new cast of young dancers, Les porteuses de mauvaises nouvelles (The Bearers of Bad Tidings) is Wim Vanderkeybus's award winning study of the physical and theatrical implications of this state.
