Unknown territories

Upon the invitation of the EUROPALIA INDONESIA festival, Meg Stuart and visual artist Jompet Kuswidananto embark on a journey of artistic investigation through collective memories and implanted fictional traumas. Imaginary and invisible spaces – and the voices that make them resonate – are one of the starting points of an adventurous leap into unknown territories.

A man moves carefully between cardboard set pieces. Everything appears peaceful in this stylized paradise, until a sudden rain shower escalates into a destructive deluge. A decade after the première of BLESSED, Francisco Camacho continues to cling to a world that has long been left in ruins.
