A dance phantom revisits the relics of a family, hailing from a past when dancing was proof of their bodies feeling safe.
“Evidence of Things Not Seen” is a performance about home, and the sensation of its presence, and its loss. It is also the story of a family living the “phantom limb syndrome”, experiencing sensations, whether painful or otherwise, in a limb that exists no more.
