· Description: This performance is a joint venture by the artist Hans Op de Beeck and writer-actor Pieter De Buysser. The piece physically links visual art and theatre, with Hans creating an object and Pieter writing a play to perform alongside it. Hans has constructed a chest with hidden cupboards and drawers. Pieter has devised a story featuring Sebastian, an old Wikileaks man surrounded by fluttering moths; his daughter Tilda, who wishes everything would disappear, including herself; a young Indignado called Nobody; and last but not least, the smart narrator Kat Schrödinger. A story that’s part blood-curdling fairytale, part edgy road movie. A story about storing things away and forgetting them, about facts and myths
