Description

The show is a durational live performance installation.
2 male and 2 female performers run through a series of task based activities and games which take them from cells to fish to insects to dinosaurs to birds to mamals to monkeys to humans. each of these 20minute sections has its own quality of atmosphere, objective and movment - for example insects facelessly scurry and build a web from string and mini bambo poles, then 2 'spiders' remain in the 'web' as the 2 'flies' hopscotch in and out untill they are finally captured and cocooned!
As the physical performance goes on a guitarist will accompany so that the levels of tension quality of movment and complexity of animal will be reflected in the music. An artist will also be on stage drawing on a piece of acetate on an overhead projector which will form a back drop to the piece, this gives each 20 minute section of evolution its own enviroment which will be drawn as the section develops and then wiped for the next section. this will make the piece clear and add synergy as all the elements of the performance are integrated and working towards the same goal - to give our artist rendition of Darwin's stages of evolution to the walk in walk out / walk by audience.

They are all currently students at circomedia - www.circomedia.com
