Compota For Real
dance + music + video + live cooking + theater + painting + light
Inspired by George Orwell’s statement “In a time of universal deceit – telling the truth is a revolutionary act”, twelve dancers, one actor, one music producer and one double bass, two video artists, one cook and one painter, created this performance from their own inner truth, looking out for sincerity and reality at each moment, questioning how truth is, in fact, revealed.
