Valentijn Dhaenens conveys the traumatic fate of front-line victims and those they leave behind.
In the flesh, he plays a hardened First World War nurse keeping dutiful watch over a critically injured soldier. Through life-sized video projections, he rises as incarnations of the wounded and dying too, his flowing monologue capturing the emotional and physical fallouts of large-scale conflict.
Inspired by real-life testimonies and accounts from the Crimea to Afghanistan, the play features seamless digital imagery and an unnerving solo performance.
