Asparagus – A Horticultural Ballet

Artist/Author: Pil and Galia Kollectiv | Reference: D1955 | Type: DVD

Recording of live performance narrating the rise of capital in the medium of asparagus. Ta rigid choreography inspired by Oskar Schlemmer’s Triadic Ballet and based on Karl Marx’s Capital dictated the movements of six performers in asparagus costumes.

Produced in collaboration with Montreal based band Les Georges Leningrad and commissioned by The Showroom Gallery, London.
