Premiere on September 2013 at the French Institute of Greece
A ‘mute’ choreography for the fragile present and the uncertain future.
With the focus always remaining on the “survivors”, the group explores the ‘domino effect’ of an epidemic declination that leads to emergency situations within a community. Attempts of social and human ‘re-functionalism’ before the total collapse are being presented on stage.
The dramaturgy is generally inspired by the world of E. Ionesco. Via an interchange of snapshots that alternate on stage in an intense, or other times absurd and nostalgic way, we see fragmented panels of a world coming to an end and the community gradually becoming null and void.
“When you’re up to your neck with shit, then there is nothing left to do but to sing”.
