Verdensteatret: Trust Me Tomorrow (2020, WP)
Trust Me Tomorrow explores the experience of blindness. Set partly in a desert landscape of high contrast light and shadow, the piece attempts to project into the possible future. Darkness becomes a space for projection, contemplation and desire. Animals which are blind or have limited vision have developed alternative ways of navigating the world – can humans do that too?
Trust Me Tomorrow is a free-floating performance work ranging from quiet, elegant introspection to a disturbed and fuzzy mindscape. While seeking to reveal an alternative time, it also seeks a handrail, a guide, something to hold on to while groping in the dark – in a world where meaning and truth are imploding.
