In search of lost stories in no man's land

Theater makers Menzo Kricz and Eleonore Van Godtsenhoven premiere 'residu,' a performance that navigates the playing field between fiction and history.

Our world is in constant transformation. Old places are torn down, leveled, and disappear beneath new apartment blocks, coffee shops, and stores. And with the buildings, industrial areas, and the indistinct no man's land, the stories also vanish.

For years, Menzo and Eleonore have shared a fascination for the imagination hidden behind seemingly worthless things. They position themselves as alternative archaeologists, guiding the audience through a landscape of objects and stories they've discovered over the last three years.

In 'residu,' lost histories are reconstructed with what has been left behind. An ode to what remains and what may be lost again thereafter.
