Constanza Macras | DorkyPark

Stages of Crisis

German and English, with German and English surtitles

Duration 90 min

In 2013 Constanza Macras | DorkyPark created the four­hour performative forest walk “Forest: The Nature of Crisis”, which interwove a return to romanticism with the world’s deepening economic and ecological crises. With “Stages of Crisis” the Berlin­ based choreographer develops this piece further and brings it to another place: a supermarket where products present themselves as the ultimate counter­ point to nature. A troop of bold, mismatched characters retell the stories of modified fairytales set in an absurd dystopia. In the midst of violent upheaval, they grapple with over­consumption, internet culture and the need for theatre itself.
