Performer, choreographer and director Wim Vandekeybus is a man of many families. He grew up surrounded by brothers and sisters, founded a creative family in dance company Ultima Vez, and now has grown-up children of his own. Drawing on performances, rehearsals, interviews and family archives, Lut Vandekeybus explores her brother's restless creativity and the way these family circles interconnect, inspire, and sometimes clash with his work. Wim is poetic yet perceptive, intimate but never indulgent.
