Extinct / Unacknowledged Loss II
Whilst on Earth in 2019, 750 billion tons of ice melted, 13 million hectars of land burned down in bushfires, 400 million hectares of land degraded and 28 million hectares of forest got cut down…
…On stage within 3 hours, 75 ice cubes melt away, 130 candles burn down. 1:11 trillion of the degraded earth becomes the new soil for a tree that is build out of 280 wooden sticks. A farewell ritual, to all resources and our cohabitants we lost on earth within the past year due to human activity.
Extinct is a performance/farewell ritual of 3 hours duration, created and performed in the frame of Unacknowledged Loss II at HAU Hebbel am Ufer in June 2020.
