Vice Versa

Would you disrupt the system to cause an awakening?

Xella loves to question things and enjoys working for the Welt.exe state. 

Xella thinks she is happy until one day a disrupted dream simulation offers her a way towards freedom.

Join Xella on a faith-filled journey towards enlightenment.

Congolese multi-disciplinary artist Dorcas Seb weaves music, spoken word performance, and physical theatre into a thought-provoking story about one character’s journey of faith.

Dorcas Seb is joined by a brilliant team of creatives who provide thrilling projection, atmospheric surround sound design, and contemporary choreography to enhance the storytelling where performance-art meets theatre.

A vibrant show where performance-art meets theatre. Explore the journey of how a young woman goes from being a passive civilian in a totalitarian, dystopian and android-like world to becoming an active voice for change and finding freedom.
