“Over ørkenen, bak korsryggen vår. Opp fjellet, ned langs ryggraden vår. Over havet, rett under nesa vår. Den dagen krigen brøt ut, reiste vi hjemmefra. Geografi og politikk blir fysisk forlenget og transformert til organisk scenografi – våre kropper – og vi lærer hva berøring, tilstedeværelse og utholdenhet virkelig handler om.”

 

“Invisible lands” er et særegent møte mellom figurteater og koreografi. Prisbelønt forestilling fra finske Livsmedlet.

Invisible lands

a   g e o g r a p h i c a l   s t r i p t e a s e –

 

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.

 

Duration: 50 minutes

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”

This performance has a character. It shines especially through the unfailing self-confidence of the performers – through the fact that they stand completely behind every action they do (…) Such a distinctive performance needs without any doubt that kind of self-confidence in order to succeed, and the performance succeeds so well, that the makers should be congratulated”

The collaboration between Sandrina Lindgren and Ishmael Falke is admirably strong and intense, their dynamics is outstanding.” – 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.”

The miniatures are an interesting way to approach the subject of refugees; they detouch you from the characters, but at the same time bring the subject closer.” – Frida Maria Pessi / Turun Sanomat 26.04.2015

Mind blowing performance, I am speechless. The bond between human body and imagination is seamless!” – Katri Leikola / Paljon melua teatterista 16.11.2017
