Invisible Lands questions the way today’s media reports on the desperate situation faced by many migrants. In a small, intimate space, the two performers play with scale between the micro and the macro. Using their bodies as a landscape for miniature figures, they tell the story of a perilous journey into exile: throngs of people walking up a hill made from a curved back, a family lost in a mountain of knees, hunted down by a helicopter the size of a matchbox… A compelling story of devastating sadness.
