Thin wires sprout from a black box. In the semidarkness, a woman, half-human, half-insect, brings seemingly useless objects to life. Wholly new metamorphoses take place here in the same way that the folds of a harmless window curtain can transform into a ghostly figure in the eyes of a child.

Atmospherically, one is reminded of a 1950s horror film and the disturbing imaginings of metamorphosis of Kafka. »Kefar Nahum« is a brilliant balancing act between playful effects and serious topics such as pretensions to power and the often cruel process of evolution.

The title of the piece refers to the location of Caparnaum (also known as Kfar Nahum or Kapernaum, from the »cursed village« in the Bible) located on the Gennesaret sea, in which Jesus performed some of his miracles.

Nicole Mossoux and Patrick Bonté are two of the best-known artists within the Belgian dance community, especially within the French-speaking part of the country. Since meeting in 1985, the director Patrick Bonté and the choreographer and dancer Nicole Mossoux, both born in 1956 in Brussels, have created about 30 productions and five films together. At euro‑scene Leipzig have also been shown »Les dernières hallucinations de Lucas Cranach« (»Lucas Cranach’s last hallucinations«, 1995), »Simonetta Vespucci« (2000) and »Nuit sur le monde« (»Night over the world«, 2009).
