Belgian artist Sarah Vanhee’s art blends performance, visual arts and dance. Her projects are often created on site, unfolding in living rooms, prisons, companies, parks, etc. In Unforetold, she conceives a space where nine-year-old children are thinking together. They can relate to what has not been predicted yet. Using their bodies and voices, they ask questions with their own words and thought patterns, thus generating more questions and therefore fictions that may come true. Light and darkness play an important role in this space. Light enables one to see and exposes things whereas darkness enables one to hide and be hidden as well as to imagine. Unforetold is part of the series of children plays that CAMPO, an art center based in Ghent, Belgium, commissioned from several artists, including Alain Platel, Tim Etchell, Milo Rau, Gob Squad or Philippe Quesne.
