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.

Invisible Lands has premiered 2015 and has been since than performing across Finland as well as in Estonia and France. On 2018 the show will continue to perform in Slovenia, Germany and Norway.
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”

“This performance has a character. It shines especially through the unfailing self-cofidence 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-cofidence 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
