Failure Egg Performance
September 23 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm UTC+2
Join us at Institut for X for a live performance including video, movement, motion capture, and live music by ‘Failure Egg’ collective artists Jack Helfrich, Jemila MacEwan, and Rob Ruth.
‘Failure Egg’ is a multi-disciplinary performance collaboration that takes an improvisational approach to creative resistance and survival within a traumatized ecosystem. This project embraces open-ended improvisation as a foundation for creating multimedia works that intermesh dance, writing, music, digital animation, stop-animation, and motion capture technology.
‘Failure Egg’ takes inspiration from the eco-queer evolution of life on earth, drawing from examples of vulnerable yet enduring survivors of planetary transformation. These life forms testify how mutation and hybridization dissolve notions of hierarchy, gender binary, species distinction, and egoic notions of individuality. They are also foundational to the survival and adaptation of life throughout past and present ecological catastrophes. The artists aim to learn from the evolutionary genius of these sensitive beings, to find meaningful creation methods for an ecologically uncertain future.
