THE NATURE OF CRISIS

..
“The Nature of Crisis” was a thematic cycle developed between 2012-2013 by Constanza Macras – Dorky Park. It consisted in the creation of  three different  productions :  two site-specific projects and one stage work. Namely:

monte verita

+ THE TRUTH ABOUT MONTE VERITÁ (2013) an interactive expressionistic film installation and live performance, which focuses on the artist colony “Monte Verità”, one of the most significant sources of alternative movements in the 20th century and place of utopian escape. An evening program that can be performed in conventional theaters or cinema venues and in which the audience writes the text of the movie by SMS, followed by a subsequent performance.

forest+ FOREST (2013) How do romantic concepts of life and nature linger on in the current German “Forest” ideology? This project consisted in a theatrical tour in the Müggelwald forest, with  dance, performance art, texts and music, in which Macras addressed the mythological image of the “German forest” connecting it with certain problematics of our urban contemporary society.
