BLAST is the latest choreographic production by VEDANZA Luxembourg created and performed by Emanuela Iacopini (IT/LU) in collaboration with Frey Faust (US/DE), Yuko Kominami (LU/JP/PT), and Saju Hari (UK/IN) to an original sound track by Rajivan Ayyappan (IN/LU). 

BLAST reflects on destruction and creation, transition and transformation, the end and the beginning, searching into the light and darkness of explosions.  Coproduced by CCRD Opderschmelz and Capé-Centre des Arts Pluriels Ettelbruck in Luxembourg with the financial support of the Ministère de la Culture, the piece was created and toured in several cities in Europe and abroad and premiered in Luxembourg in November 2020.
