AdvertisementIn 2013, Constanza Macras | DorkyPark created the piece “Forest: The Nature of Crisis”, a piece that took as point of departure the romantic associations to the forest, the fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm, the economic bubbles and economies in crisis. The piece was performed in Müggelwald Berlin as a four-hour long performative walk through different notions of space.
Today, as the crisis deepens economically and ecologically, as humanity moves forward in denial of the harmful effects of digitalisation in the environment and the place of the stage is largely in danger, the reality of theatre is put into a big question mark. “Stages of Crisis” transits between over consumption and the global initiatives and reactions born in the internet and fed by a fearful ‘horror vacui’ and cookbooks in lockdown. Individualism is in crisis, but does not orient itself towards nature in order to find forms of collectivism; a new path that fails because solidarity as such has not been established and predatory forms continue to prevail.
