Between the inside and the outside of a person, in this subtle, blurry border, we find a door and open it. A metaphysical, surreal journey begins, into the depths of the unconscious. “Incognitum” uses the language of contemporary dance, puppetry and cinematic illusions to explore the state of social isolation. What if loneliness were an opportunity?
