Performance: “CRY YOU ONE”
Celebration of and narrative about people and cultures of South Louisiana, while in the same time sharply criticizing ecological crisis of Pacific coast, that it has been evolving day by day in this part of United States of America. The performance is a result of almost eighteen months of research and practice. Premiered in autumn in 2013, as a procession of four kilometers through which you can see and hear poetry, song, music and drama situation. It is performed by “traveling” through the whole city that than becomes one huge stage. Everything is happening in the dusk of a day, remembering the old days when the stories where told around campfire, when the day slowly enters the night. Imagine a play, which can inspire you so much, that it makes you wish to take a part in saving endangered natural beauties of our planet.
