In the online performance as I collapse, during which viewers encounter microscopic luminous algae, recoil performance group will once again let living creatures other than human beings be the focus of its work. Via camera close-ups, performer Nelly Zagora’s body will turn into an imaginary landscape where water becomes a life-giving link between species. Through several extended choreographic works, recoil performance group has examined how various living organisms can take over the creation of performance, in order to address issues around sustainability and question the dominance of human beings over other species.
You are invited to experience this performance from home. Streamed internationally, the piece will include an introduction video, a live performance, a collective meditation and a physical meeting with the luminescent algae Pyrocystis fusiformis .
Audience members in the Ottawa-Gatineau region will receive algae samples from SAW prior to the day of the presentations.
Spaces are limited to 20 participants per performance. The deadline to book for your ticket is Thursday, January 21 at 12PM.
The presentations will be in English.
