The Loose Collective: On Earth - Part II
In ON EARTH - PART II, The Loose Collective sets out on a paleo-ontological trip. In a dark cave, they find new usage for everyday objects and hidden emotions. Bodily relics are discovered, the own species and its relatives are examined.
In this second part of their trilogy about life on planet Earth, The Loose Collective brings the audience closer to the idea of the human animal.
What does it feel like? What does it smell like? What does it sound like?
These are some of the initial questions that motivated the group to create an environment of exploration, action and examination.
In a completely dark, cave-like setting, five performers recreate a protocol of survival, in which the borders between the past, the present and the future are blurred.
AUDIENCE DRESS CODE: ALL BLACK!
