For centuries man has been fascinated with the notion of immortality. Is it possible to cheat death? How do you reanimate a corpse? In this production, Diederik Peeters breathes life into this ancient fascination. ‘Apparitions’ is a ghost hunt that navigates between history and science fiction, between superstition and skepticism.

In ‘Apparitions’ Peeters disguises himself as spiritualist. He travels back to the nineteenth century to mingle with prominent scientists and revisit the fantasies and mysteries surrounding popular inventions of the time. Simultaneously, he catapults himself to the end of the twenty-first century to see what technological developments are being used to revive the dead. ‘Apparitions’ is the last performance in a series of creations for which Peeters reaches beyond the conventions, experimenting with different formats and media.
