Khandhas (2016)

Khandhas door FEST

“Khandhas“ is a soloperformance by Ann Willemsen directed by Manu Luyten.

According to the Buddha, “Desires are the cause of all suffering”. One must overcome all attachment to overcome suffering.
2500 years later a woman reflects on her life. Amidst everything she has and is, she wonders about letting go.

She wants more
She desires
She wants less
She has ideas
She knows her desire
She desires to desire less

“Khandhas” is a Buddhist term and refers to all that a man can attach to. The performance was created out of a personal exploration of detachment. The result exhibits the tension between letting go and finding support.
