It's the story of everyone and for everyone who has ever been misplaced. Everyone who's been torn and tossed trying to belong and to find a way home. A brilliant performance. Electric and mesmerising. The score (a mix of live orchestra and opera and electronic bits), the performances (I have a newly asserted awe of what human, if not my personal, body is capable of), the light, the stage design, the costumes are all brilliant. I cried at the end. I am in awe. Thank you TimeOut. This is a Lars Von Trier of performances: it's gonna stay with me, jus as haunting and daunting.
