The public were invited to join this pilot, a performative sharing, leading into an immersive party with the characters of La Petite Mort at the Halfway Hotel.
One day, the residents of an apartment block stopped breathing. All at once. All together. The air had become too rarefied. They waited for something to happen. Anything. An eternity. All at once. A little death. 'La Petite Mort.'
Liberally inspired by the writing of Juan Rulfo and Herman Melville, this hybrid digital performance juggles a longing for proximal presence with the playful possibilities of screen-based performance.
Through choreographic processes developed by Cross Pollination, 6 performers dive in the universes of telenovelas and magic realism to share their concerns and insights about online performative modes created during the pandemic.
CROP, Cross-Pollination performance productions: Adriana La Selva, Marije Nie, Andrea Maciel, Patrick Campbell and Jonas De Rave.
