“ConsuMorphosis”. (work in Progress).
This is the last of a series of 3 “metamorphos-ically” inspired dance work to see the light. The work aims to portrait a non literal image of what the future could be after we’ve consumed everything there is on earth.
The work was heavily inspired from images by Photographer Chris Jordan (chrisjordan.com), some of his images are featured as a projection at the start of the piece.
“Metamorphosis phenomenas are all around us and part of life on many levels, a constant motion and adaptation of our world... use, using up, utilization, expending, depletion; waste, squandering, dissipationtransformation, mutation, transmutation, change, alteration, conversion, modification, remodeling, reconstruction; transmogrification; transubstantiation: ConsuMorphosis
"Company Decalage's ConsuMorphosis was one of the new works I was most glad existed of the ten commissioned dances in Breakin' Convention 2013, and one I would gladly see again. (Donald Hutera, dance writer for The Times)
