Be Fruitful and Multiply 2.0
Choreographer Alka Nauman`s work attempts to transform and re-mix a score made by her for a group into a solo for herself. The piece offers a satiric gaze on the ambiguous nature of plastic bags; on their elegance and ugliness, as well as their daunting ability to adopt different life forms. It fuses artificiality and exaggerated devotion toward plastic, to reveal the absurdity of our attitude toward the environment.
The deathbed of Mother Earth
Choreographer Keity Pook brings us into the mystery. Cyborgian goddesses returning to the land in the post-society era, they are preparing for the funeral of Mother Nature. She is not dead yet, but she is very weak. The dystopian, radical and eerily beautiful performance will take the audience into a raw encounter with the power of the goddesses.
