Performance given by 8 dancers and musicians
A 'grounding' experience that fuses sound, image and the flow that surrounds us, overhauling them and leaving us irrevocably changed.
What if we began to see ourselves as the change we want to generate in the world?
News that the end of Western civilisation is set to draw to an end in 2090 is met with a pinch of dejection. And when you look at the disproportionate role played by capitalism in our lives, despondency grows. This piece takes a long, hard look at reality. Yet the result is a revitalising cocktail that dismantles the scaffolding of our planet and our lives.
For the past fifteen years, the cosmopolitan Kubilai Khan Investigations company has been creating new artistic dynamics that shift our centre of gravity and shatter our conditioning. Moving in harmony with the lifeblood of our planet, from the coasts of Mozambique to Tokyo Bay, the eight dancers whip up a poetic, contemporary, sensual storm.
These incredibly talented, dynamic performers encourage us to dip into unprecedented experiences. Contemporary dancers, a sound 25 artist, a filmmaker and musicians intertwine like fingers on a same hand to bring us new movements and bind us to a world that could operate differently.
