BALLET - GRANITE / SYNOPSIS

Ballet - Granite begins with the aftermath of a nuclear incident, an explosion. A group of people run ashore an unexpected landscape. Everything is about to happen, but nothing seems to have changed. How might the alterations to the organic world, the world of vibrant and edible matter might affect the way we perform, when eating itself has become a productive activity? The setting: a mystical landscape, a crash site, in the wild or in the rush of a blackout. Pulling apart the “ballet” of the food system in musical scenes and absurd stories the performance deconstructs the format of a hysterical cabaret, simple actions which gradually unravel. Based on the principle of a crash choreography, the performance is driven by a concern for image, sound, gesture and speech and the staging of both contemplative or active human presences, performing cursory actions, following instructions, responding to chance, ever moving in shifting assemblages into a futuristic anthropology.
