On Monday, October 30 2017 The Non-Present Performer took place in Zaal 3 in The Hague. The need to ‘step out for a while’ was addressed to van Laere’s fundamental love for movement. Under influence of hypnosis, he temporarily lent his body to four professional dancers, unconsciously forming a part of the performance. After, there was an post-show discussion with anaesthetist Rutger van Leersum, hypnotist Joris Waayer, the dancers and the audience present.
The Non-Present Performer is made possible by ‘Het Fonds Podium Kunsten en Zaal 3’.
