Cherkaoui classic revised and resurrected for Ballet Flanders

Only through our memories do the dead remain with us. Memory can’t recreate reality, but it can help us to come to terms with it. In this highly acclaimed work from 2004, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui honours his deceased relatives. In Memoriam presents an imaginary underworld, in which the dancers revive each other through attraction and repulsion. A timeless piece about how tradition can only exist if it is continually reinvented in the present.
