The man is restless.
One minute he is in a barren wasteland,
the next he is in a public toilet in the city,
the next he's sitting on a rock with a book,
the next he's dragging body bags across endless dust.
The man is restless. He wants to disappear.
There is also a fisherman and a woman of great disrepute.
They live and interact with the man. They know not why he's come nor where he's going. They don't care.
The man, the fisherman and the woman of great disrepute, they are altogether strange, altogether sad.
Hopefully they'll disappear. But it's never so easy.
Invisibility/Breathing is director Natalie Hennedige's theatrical response to Quah Sy Ren's Invisibility (1996), examining the hope and futility of restless people in a restless world.
