Extended Falls to Humanity

An installation for and with the participation of citizens

Extended Falls to Humanity is a choreographed installation that engages the citizens and takes place at several of the country’s local town halls. The performance deals with the things, we dream about and fear for the future.

recoil performance group will, in advance of the performance, visit the town hall and the citizens of the town. Based on the citizen’s own stories and speculations about the future, recoil will create a choreographic visual and musical experience of the individuals and the presence of the collective in the political space.

Extended Falls to Humanity is about people – and about being human in the community where the performance takes place. Four performers will, and collaboration with 3D sounds and scenography, give you a new experience of the local community and the local town hall. A performance, where the citizens are not merely spectators, but also contributors to it.

Extended Falls to Humanity is the third and final part of The Membrane Project
