Vanishing Point - the performance

The autobiographical concert Verdwijntijd will lead to an installation/performance at Lunalia for the first time. In a fifteen-hour performance Sofie Vanden Eynde evokes the process of burnout. From sunrise (06.18h) to sunset (21.02h): from having time and being time to grinding time. From man to machine, from silence to noise. Composer Vladimir Gorlinsky creates fifteen hours of soundscapes and music especially for this performance. Sofie plays, rests and rests less and less. In the late afternoon Sofie's frenetic search reaches an inevitable breaking point. What if the measure of life falters? Or even comes to a complete standstill? Who are we then? Fifteen people from Mechelen search for an answer together with her. The venue is the St Rombouts Cathedral. Artist Emilie Lauwers created a series of illustrations that trace the inner movements of burnout. Her drawings are on display in the choir. Visitors are free to walk in and out, to experience, to feel, to reflect - and also to share.
