Pietro Marullo/Insiemi Irreali [Belgium/Italy] | ‘WRECK-LIST OF EXTINCT SPECIES’
‘WRECK-List of extinct species’ is an interdisciplinary performance mixing movement, sound and visual art. A huge black plastic soft sculpture (like a pillow), inflated with air, moves in the space. Almost as a hunter, this abstract object has a very evocative power, as it swallows and spits humain beings, it could be considered like an allegory of Leviathans or legendary monsters under the sea, or a metaphor of capitalism, human conditions, etc. It has the power to amplify the imagination of whoever is watching, multiplying associations and conceptual layers. By inverting the relationship between a choir and its landscape, it is possible to write a partition for a soft sculpture and, through its manipulation, allow geometric forms to appear and leads to a whole new investigation on the presence of performers on stage.
This performance is presented as part of the Crossover dance project/Residency in collaboration with the Kolkata Centre of Creativity.
