Thousands of fireflies going on and off at the same time in the trees.
Two people, far from each other, who go through the same experience at the very same moment.
The word ‘coincidence’ has so many different definitions that all these definitions cancel each other out, and only an empty space is left. Kurt Demey and Joris Vanvinckenroye try in Unknown Evidences to challenge ‘coincidence’ in order to catch a glimpse of its existence.
The audience find themselves in a crossover of theatre, music and mentalism where coincidences accumulate and turn into magical experiences. The performance is spectacular, poetic and full of music.
Rode Boom brings visual road trips which take the spectator into 'their' reality and far beyond.
Theatre performances interspersed with surreal and symbolic images, which also find their way into the public space. The artistic palette of Kurt Demey intertwines techniques of mentalism and illusion with visual arts and performance.
Rode Boom has produced successful performances such as Horned Man (2008-2009) and La Ville Qui Respire (2010) in the past. Currently Unknown Evidences (2015), Garden of Chance (2019) and We are possible (2019) can be seen on various stages and festivals. At the end of 2021, the new creation The Space in Between / Realities will have its premiere.
