“Everything interesting takes place in the dark; there is no doubt about it. We know nothing of the true story of the men” – Louis Ferdinand Céline

La posibilidad que desaparece frente al paisaje takes us on a tour of Europe via ten cities, chosen for the fantasy worlds they conjure in the imagination: Madrid, Berlin, Marseille, Lisbon, Kiev, Brussels, Thessaloniki, Warsaw, Lanzarote and Florence. These ten landscapes are inhabited by four performers and an off-stage voice, creating a multiplicity of opinions on today’s Europe and the history it carries with it; it is as if the images, bodies and text are at odds with each other, yet their eventual confrontation is laden with meaning. The piece traces a horizontal line between map and territory, revealing the barbarism buried deep beneath the beauty and calm. Whether they are attributed to anonymous individuals or famous intellectuals and artists, their words tell unconventional everyday stories and call into question what and how we see.

Since 2010, El Conde de Torrefiel has been stirring up audiences across Europe with their abrasive shows. Co-founded and orchestrated by Pablo Gisbert and Tanya Beyeler, their creations seek a visual and textual aesthetic in which theatre, choreography, literature and the visual arts coexist. This is the first time their work is presented in the Nordic region.
