Production Details / Press Releases
In an unusual and slightly absurd universe a group of people has been traveling with each other for quite some time. While they do manage to preserve their feeling for the shared direction, they gradually lose the sense of their actual goal. Empowered by the gaze of the audience, four performers and a plant create a teeming ecosystem with interactions, symbioses, waste and dirt while generating a biodiversity that finds itself in permanent change. Our relationship to nature serves as the point of departure for a reflection about the world in which we live.
Our relationship to nature as a starting point for a reflection on the world in which we live.
Ivana Müller is a choreographer, artist and author of texts. Through her artistic work and practice she re-thinks the politics of spectacle and spectacular, re-visits the place of imaginary and imagination, questions the notion of « participation » and “collective”, investigates the idea of value and its representation, and keeps on getting inspired by the relationship between performer and spectator. Croatian born, Paris based award winning artist, Ivana Müller has been creating and performing work over the last 15 years in the international dance/theatre context and occasionally in the visual arts frames, amongst others Venice Art Biennale 2015.
