Talking about the future is central in our conversations, a symptom of the uncertainty we are currently experiencing. How to inhabit the vacuum caused by the absence of a future? How to do this in the performing arts?

El Conde de Torrefiel are back at Kunstenfestivaldesarts, following the overwhelming success of their previous performances – a.o. Guerrilla (2015), La Plaza (2018). They enchanted the Brussels audience and the world beyond with innovative dramaturgies: a series of precise actions with superimposed text, which transports each of us via our ability to imagine stories together.

Now, they play with our daily relationship with fiction. Hyperstition is a term usually given to (political) fictions that create the future they predict. This phenomenon is explored by centering on the power of imagination; if reality consists of fiction, perhaps it can only be disrupted by ultra-fictions. El Conde de Torrefiel returns to Brussels with a new fascinating creation. In the emptiness of a theatre, the largest machine ever created for the imagination, every action of Una imagen interior is a metamorphic journey ready to surprise and question us. A journey to the centre of our imagination; a journey in the present to train our imagination for the future.
