Corona Performance / Viral Horizons (Video, 14:35)
by Tom Albrecht and Rosa Schmidt
The idea for this performance came spontaneously under the first impression of the threat of the corona virus and the subsequent shutdown of the economy, travel and physical encounter. “The virus is the most radical decelerator of our time” (Hartmut Rosa)
Climate change and the corona pandemic are linked. Being global everywhere and using global resources is part of the cause of the pandemic. More and more people are claiming more and more wildlife habitats, land use has changed dramatically, wild and farm animals and animal products are being transported around the globe and global travel has increased dramatically.
CHOREOGRAPHY INDIGO WINGS
The planet a sphere, the yielding to gravity a breathing, an admission to the rotation in the colored twilight, to the integrity, the becoming and passing, an exercise of confidence in the carrying capacity of the earth’s crust, a overcoming of the civilisational acceleration of flight, a momentary collapse of total networking, an attempt at vanity withdrawal, a drop-out, a farewell, a flapping of wings, a prayer close to the ground, an erection of the spine against the gesture of domination, a shift in perspective in several sequences, a transformation of the technototalitarian coercion of arrogance.
