Production Details / Press Releases
“HEKATOMBE III“ is a two channel video-installation with live performance. Video projections portray leaders of native peoples from territories and cultures of the so-called Americas, entering into a synchronous dialogue with one another. “Movements and Rituals for the renewal of the World” creates a web of relationships that expands into cartographies, dances, and soundscapes that aims to embody earth’s fabric: our shared home.
„HEKATOMBE III” reflects on the relationship between human beings and Gaia – the idea of the Earth as a dynamic living being, through the lens of indigenous ceremony. The performance, with an anticolonial perspective, documents millennia-old practices and messages, interweaving visions, movements and wisdom of a reciprocal relationship with planet earth.
