INVITED draws material from intensive research into (stage) space and co-authorship in contemporary dance. In his new production, Seppe Baeyens formulates his artistic response to the question of how the audience can help write the choreography of a performance. Taking dance as a common language, in the space of one hour he wants to look for an alternative way of living together and thereby establish a community embracing the cast and the audience.
INVITED consists of a varied intergenerational group of performers who reflect society. The audience plays an important part, as well as the stage design. It connects and divides, becomes visible and invisible, and leads audiences and performers through a collectively written choreography. For a moment, we see a glimpse of a community without prejudice, where everyone can be themselves in a liberating experience.
