Two artists, a stage technician and a musician are waiting to start their show. Everything is in place, but where is the audience? Things are clearly unravelling. Who is playing the piano? Why is a coffee mug floating through the air? And who is that ghost sneaking off with the extension cord?

Theater Artemis, widely applauded for creating wonderfully absurd theatre for young audiences, return to the Festival with a show about everything you don’t see and the joy of remaining unseen.

A bravely staged fairytale about imagination and recognition” De Standaard
