France | Performance, 25 min, Gastria-cave
Thierry Alexandre, collecting materials from the natural landscape of Tinos, animal skulls, bones, wings, leaves, composed a hybrid creature drawn from local myths and traditions that he wore. Blending the natural with the artificial, and the fantastic with the real, in the performance he presented at Gastria Cave, he invited the public to follow a life cycle, from pain and decline, to transformation and regeneration.
Lara Buffard and Thierry Alexandre (based in London) direct and perform together in Timebomb Theatre, a multimedia, genre defying theatrical company delivering cathartic, otherworldly, avant garde interventions to 21st century audiences. They draw on their respective backgrounds in Performance art and Butoh dance to create works deeply concerned with the Earth, Humanity, Spirit and how to heal the rift between these through intense presence, communication and personal commitment.
