Jungle the Future portrays the science-fiction journey of a humanized zebrA and sharK that escape their habitats to settle in cement territories: our cities. In the heart of a metropolis – amidst its grey neighborhoods- they confront the rites and customs of humans. In an effort to blend in they eat cigarettes, dress-up in the corners, get drunk on salt and gallop on rollers. The scandalous dream of the zebrA-lexandra Bellon, and of the sharK-arla Isidorou, is to integrate into human society. The audience, as if visiting a zoo or a crime scene, stays safely behind the lines. They witness their struggles, nostalgia, dreams for a better life and irresistable stamina to keep trying.
Their movements unfold between savage animalistic trance gestures and wacky odd human actions. What happens when the animals become all too human?“Jungle the Future” is a m-Ask s-How that questions our relationship with animals, urban and wild territories: BORDERS, ORDERS, OTHERS.
In this physical theater performance the music becomes a storyteller without words, tracing back the migration of the two animals with granulair percussive sounds, atmospheric motives and groovy cords. Are you ready for the JUNGLE? Are you ready for the FUTURE?
Jungle the Future to offer your mind provocative wild spaces and species.
