Insatiable on #WordyMonday
I asked Ivan about how he had come to this choreography, which I was lucky enough to photograph at last years ADAD Bloom Festival. It turns out that the original spark came from a very young close relative. So wedded to his playstation and TV was this young man, and so unwilling to engage with others was he, that Ivan developed a short choreography on consumerism, advertising and its effects.
Forward and backward, attracted and repelled by the adverts and objects on the screen the dancers go. Some worship it. Others, despite trying to defend themselves, are pulled inexorably back. Few escape. The choreography’s end sees them – and the society, generation or people they represent – extinct.
