Ever since Chilean theatre maker and director Manuela Infante, one of the faces of the Brussels theatre house KVS, was little, she shares an endless curiosity for the unknown with her father. Although they approach the subject from a different angle – he’s an astronomer, she’s an artist – one topic kept on coming back in their conversations: the horizon.
The horizon denotes the unknown, but rather to what will never be known. The boundary dividing what can be known and what will never be knowable. It’s basically a concept that describes the border of human knowledge. Just as the horizon, you may chase it, but the border will always move just a tad further away. As if it were protecting something, making sure there is always an exceeding darkness out there beyond our grasp.

Based on the ongoing conversations with her father, this time Manuela Infante takes the stage herself as a character, as her own subject of inquiry, alongside her long-term collaborator Diego Noguera and with actors Andie Dushime, Valentijn Dhaenens, Mieke De Groote and Pitcho Womba Konga. Together they will explore the horizons of the knowable inside and outside humanity.
