notallwhowanderarelost, not all who wander are lost, Benjamin Verdonck  Belgium, Smock Alley Theatre, Oct 8 - Oct 11, Dublin Theatre Festival

notallwhowanderarelost is a performance created with few words, lots of tricks, colours, geometrical figures, opening doors and tumbling-down curtains. This is theatre pared back to its most basic components, within easy reach, at eye level.

Having trained as an actor, Benjamin Verdonck has developed a body of work that moves freely between performances on stage and in public spaces, and visual art installations. For his latest work, he chose as a starting point a table-top theatre that can pop up anywhere and disappear just as swiftly. On top of this magic box and inside it he functions as an actor and as a stage technician, revealing a brand of acoustic and visual poetry that is both tangible and enigmatic.

‘Time is a river which sweeps me along
but I am the river
It is a tiger which destroys me
but I am the tiger
It is a fire which consumes me
but I am the fire’
– Jorge Luis Borges
