Physics and Phantasma
The door opens, somebody checks your ticket, you take your seat and you see an empty stage. Not only then, but also now, while reading this text, you imagine what will happen. And that is precisely the core of Physics and Phantasma: your imagination. It is the origin of all revolutions and all prejudice, and yet the capacity to imagine goes beyond good and evil. It defends us from the inconsistencies of this world and allows us to challenge the laws of physics.
But while many creators praise the empty stage as the central place for imagination, in Physics and Phantasma it becomes compulsive and traumatic. The vacuum must at all costs by filled with something! To this end, Iggy Lond Malmborg takes you on a journey to random and dark corners of your imagination: the place where this solo takes shape.
