SOMETHING (out of nothing)
The unrelenting logic of profit and technological development have reduced human beings to disposable objects. The next step is making our environment completely uninhabitable. The new production by Kris Verdonk explores our physical and psychological state of being in light of an imminent extinction. The dancers are often not more than shadows in a landscape of blow-up sculptures, cello-noise, and a robotic drum.
