Yeltsin and Comrades (Costumes from No Haus Like Bau)
Installation at FutureBluePerfect, Cafe Gallery Projects, London
Featuring eight performers, with a live score by Steven Kado (The Blankket, The Barcelona Pavilion, Blocks Blocks Blocks), the performance juxtaposes Bauhaus dance theory with the story of the privatisation of Russia and elements of Mozart's Magic Flute to forge a new mythology for the DiY consumer and the subject of immaterial labor. Through the performance, the heavy symbolism of state theatre and mass spectacle is reduced to the ergonomics of interior design to form a provisional aesthetic for a new politics.
