Seppe Baeyens (1981) started out as a young dancer with fABULEUS and later turned up as a performer with the Kopergietery, Kabinet k, Productiehuis Brabant, Ontroerend Goed, Miet Warlop and others. In 2015 he created his first large-scale dance production, Tornar, in association with Ultima Vez and Wim Vandekeybus. In this piece he established interaction among an intergenerational cast of professional and non-professional dancers. He chose the members of this varied group in the course of a long process of workshops and encounters at the Ultima Vez studio in Sint-Jans-Molenbeek. Tornar was selected for the Theatre Festival and has been widely praised at home and abroad. In the 2016-17 period, Seppe Baeyens received a grant from the Flemish Community to carry out research into performance space (and other spaces) and co-authorship in contemporary dance. The results of this study will be put to use in the creation of INVITED, Baeyens’ new dance production (premiere February 2018).
