Invisible Lands

April 2015

Across the desert, behind our back. Up the mountain, down our spine. Over the sea, just under our nose. On the day the war broke out, we left home.

Geography and politics are physically extended and transformed into organic performance platforms – our bodies – and we learn what touch, presence, and endurance really are about. With Invisible Lands, the visual theatre duo Livsmedlet challenges themselves in a unique meeting between puppetry and choreography.

from the reviews:

“Invisible Lands” by Livsmedlet theatre is probably the most extraordinary performance I have ever seen, and one of my most interesting theatre experiences I have had (…) This, if any, is true physical theatre” – Jaakko Virrankoski / Extempore Kulttuuriblogit 26.04.2015

“The Livsmedlet theatre group transforms the human body into a live performing platform on which it researches the no-man’s land between puppetry and choreography. The puppeteer Ishmael Falke and the choreographer-dancer Sandrina Lindgren create together a performative and meditative set, that brings the victims of refugee traffic literally to the skin.”
