The Involved Stage is an art project that addresses social issues by aesthetic means. Its productions are critical interventions based on performing and participatory art, whereby everyone is invited to reflect actively on matters of collective relevance.
The latest edition of the project revolves around cultural diversity with a focus on the tensions between 'identity' and 'otherness'. To deal with the subject, the performers and designers draw inspiration from the geometrical abstraction of De Stijl, particularly from Van Doesburg's painting Counter Composition V (1924). As a result, the show displays an unusual mixture of simplicity and suggestiveness that summons the raw substance of social experience.
