21, 22 Sept 2007. In Import Export, choreography by Koen Augustijnen. In the last 25 years Belgium has produced more important choreographers than any other country. Alain Platel formed Les Ballets C de la B (Contemporains de la Belgique) in 1984, and since then the company has intentionally blurred the divisions between dance and other forms of performance, while engaging with subjects such as alienation, mental illness and the politics of identity. Koen Augustijnen was a dancer with C de la B before turning choreographer, and his new piece, Import Export, tackles the issues of personal and political powerlessness. The piece opens with the cast rocking in unison on their haunches surrounded by anonymous-looking crates and containers. They are at sea, an illicit human cargo, insignificant pawns in the international traffic of the dispossessed.
