In 2014 Joke Laureyns and Kwint Manshoven met the Italian war reporter Franco Fagetti. Two years later, they spoke with the inhabitants of the Portuguese village of Luz, which disappeared under water after the construction of a dam. Although their situations are very different, both testimonies express the desire to be invisible. Invisible is a dance performance about catharsis. And about how, no matter what, life always has the upper hand. Embraced by nothing but one’s own body, within which the rush of blood, breath, and heartbeats continuously remind us of what life is. So beautiful, it hurts.
As is often true of the work of kabinet k, the performance speaks to an adult audience but a child can also nd his or her own way, like a dark fairy tale. Wordless. Full of wondrous images.
