Levitations is a landscape of thoughts. It’s a darkroom. It’s a remote cabin in the mountains, and everybody’s silent. There’s a shaman hypnotizing everybody, until she gets hypnotized herself, and then lies down on the ground like an animal. It’s a party with people dancing. It’s a concert and the lead singer is a young boy. His face is covered in tattoos, and he mumbles in the microphone: ‘this song is dedicated to the strangers who saved our lives’. You’re warmly invited, to this cabin, and this darkroom, and this party. You’ll hardly find a place as safe as this. Welcome.
Hannah De Meyer creates poetical universes where hope and despair, being and not being, sexuality, love and death rub shoulders. Levitations is a residual space, a gap in time where nothing and everything happens.
De Meyer avails herself of a vividly written, fairy-tale text full of deep thoughts which she often shares with the audience with a witticism or a wink. In relatively accentless, highly articulated English she envelops the audience in her dream world, in much the same way as she swathes her characters in fabric. A smoke machine called ‘atmosphere’ contributes to the rarefied sphere.
