In FLAMING LAMBORGHINI, Vincent analyzes his sexuality, working class background and childhood love ‘–dance–‘ and how they formed his identity and later the base of his work. Culturally identifying as gay, he positions himself within queer dance history starting with Nijinsky’s last public appearance. Through this he poses the essential question ‘What is meaningful to present as an artist.’ while grappling with the notion that where we come from does not determine where we are going. Sharing his journey in sculpting his identity, from his physical body to the values in both his artistic and private sphere, he aims to create a space for simple yet powerful metamorphoses.
VINCENT RIEBEEK started dancing hip-hop and street dance in his pre-teens. While finishing his high school education he went to the pre-education dance program at the AHK Amsterdam where he graduated from the School for New Dance Development in 2013. The first work he presented internationally was made in collaboration with Florentina Holzinger during their studies and is touring international stages since 2010. After their debut Kein Applaus fur Scheisse the duo went on to make two more performances called Spirit (2012) and Wellness (2013) and are currently toured and handled by Campo (Ghent). Dust (2011), in collaboration with Michele Rizzo, The show show in collaboration with Ligia Lewis and Come Clean a solo performed by himself where all presented both in gallery spaces and theatres in Europe and abroad.
