Karen Barad intra-acts with the thematics of Manuela Infante’s latest piece Horizon.
Theatre maker and director Manuela Infante has always been fascinated by the unknown. In her latest piece "Horizon" she explores the notion of an ever-evolving horizon that doesn't just mark the boundary of human knowledge but alludes to what might forever remain out of reach.The unknown is not only out there in the universe at the end of our sight, it’s also in here, stretching into our body, our biography and our history.
In her work, Manuela Infante often perceives the "more-than-human" as this unknowable territory, this excess existing both externally and within our very being. In the context of the first performances of "Horizon" a special afternoon will take place. Manuela Infante will invite one of her all time heroes, the distinguished physicist, feminist thinker and philosopher Karen Barad to navigate the boundaries of knowledge, blending interviews, tales and imaginative narratives.
The event is part of our More-Than-Human Encounters series, organized by VUB Crosstalks and Kaaitheater. While it's not essential to have watched Manuela's theatre piece "Horizon" to enjoy this event, if you're interested, you can catch the performance later that evening at 20:00. Further details and show dates can be found on the KVS website.
17:00-18:30 The Things We Know We Will Never Know
