Invisible Museum is a female led melancholic surreal comedy, about the life (and thoughts) of Yolanda, a Latin American immigrant, who works as gallery invigilator in a famous museum. Her job is to sit at the corner of the obscure “Emergent Artist’s Room” watching over the visitors to make sure they wouldn’t touch the art pieces. That’s ALL what she’s in charge of. She’s not allowed to interact with anyone or patrol around the rooms. She has to be still. Nevertheless, Yolanda’s mind is free to fly. And so, it will. Lost in her thoughts Yolanda mixes reality and fantasy, bringing to the audience her most secret desires.
In the real world, she interacts with Laurelle and Wanda K. The first one the museum’s new curator recently nominated the youngest most successful Art Curator in UK, a true rising star. The second, a conceptual artist from East London, author of the art piece Yolanda looks after. An unknown emergency locks the three of them inside the room, forcing them to endure a very long time together. Reality merges with Yolanda’s dreams and desires (among them her burlesque fantasies) and we enter into a journey throughout her mind.
Choreographies pop up as possibilities for relationships, spoken word suddenly seems to be the only way of communication and an increase surreal environment reveals layers of humanity. Invisible Museum is an all-female cast playing a melancholic and funny tale of self-exposure. An allegoric parade revealing the invisibility of lowers social classes, the clash of hierarchies and how pathetic humans and art can be, when truly undressed.
