“Booty Looting” memory and mediums

Today’s guest weaves music with movement, dialogue with dance, photography with philosophy and myth with imagery. Film-maker and choreographer Wim Vandekeybus joins Jade Barker in the studio to talk about his production “Booty Looting” as it premieres in Paris.

The high-energy show features dancers, a photographer whose images are projected in real time and a musician playing live. Vandekeybus tells Jade about his love for mixing mediums and why he believes art is an act of stealing.

Also on the show, we take a look at the play borrowing cinematic conventions. "À Nu" is the French adaptation of the controversial post-911 film "Strip Search". France 24’s Luke Brown went to meet both the play's director, Marc Saez, and the original screen-writer for the film, Tom Fontana, who told him why they were both attracted to this story.
