About this event

The ‘DEPARTING MINDS’ have one goal, not to feel foreign in their own skin, once they gather around others in this rather small environment. And suddenly they sit with these people in the same ‘boat’. Poetic drama written by Existence Theatre about a desperate search for allies in uncertain times. 

The performance responds to habituated and embodied expressions that need to be challenged so that adaptation to chaotic, uncertain situations can happen in more flexible ways. Unforeseen situations trigger emotional eruptions. This show makes you face close-up vulnerability and raises awareness of the effects that micro-racism and stereotypical stigmatisation have on someone, who doesn't turn a blind eye any longer. Surreal, confronting and immersive.


Presented by:
ART IN PROCESS & Existence Theatre

EXISTENCE THEATRE is a unique form of performance theatre, co-founded by interdisciplinary artists Bello Benischauer and Elisabeth M Eitelberger. Over two decades they have refined their practice by combining video projection, live sound composition, movement and text as spoken language(s), while challenging theatrical and performative methods. Influenced by their European education about postmodern ideas, the artists learn from immediate environments and address urgent, everyday topics. They engage with changing ensembles, depending on the project's scope and intensity. Their explorations are site-specific works, known to be poignant, powerful, confronting, non-conventional, poetic and surreal.

Performed by Liv Richardson, Emma Benischauer, Ainsley Marr, Aileigh Rose McKee, Elisabeth Eitelberger.

Sound is performed live by Bello Benischauer.
