Role: Composition and performance
SUMMIT is an immersive performance that speculates about dark future scenarios. The artists envision it as a collective mourning ritual, a preparation for an unexpected, yet already evident Future Event. The aim of the gathering is to deconstruct and reassemble preconceptions of a possible (yet unimaginable) catastrophe that vanishes humanity from Earth.
To approach the topic the artists collect inspiration from philosophical thoughts on mortality (Michel Foucault), Timothy Morton’s concept of dark ecology, Sigmund Freud’s death drive, suicide sects of the 1990s and zombie aesthetics.
