Drumming in the Hall of the Mountain

Category: Show Related artist: Studio Stefan Jovanović

On a planet from another time and space there lived a fictional humanity that failed to respond to their environmental crisis. Four supernatural mages intervene to save this planet from its death byending humanity’s perception of time as linear. This new outdoor performance-work mergeschoreography, live-music, and installation-art to address one of the most pressing issues of our time,the death of our imagined future on this planet we call home. Drumming in the Hall of the Mountain invites you to consider what togetherness can be when weoccupy space and time physically, fictionally, and fantastically with creatures and stories from othertimes and other places. Using methods of contemporary ritual-making together with archetypes andstructures of ceremony, the work collides different realities together: old and new technologies, realand virtual worlds, art audiences with passers-by, present with future time
