This mystical and eerie dance performance is about the connection between what we see and what we believe. It includes an evocative voice-over, which describes and interprets that which is present but cannot be seen. A visually striking and funny world, which can be placed under the slogan of its favourite motif – a smiling snake, a dying sun and the gentle droppings of unclean slime.
“ Louise Ahl yet again balancing provocatively on the cusp between sly spoof and an uplifting quest for images and rituals that can give meaningful expression to existence.”
