The Fall is a theatrical dance performance inspired by the Greek tragedy of Elektra by Euripides. It tells a story of symbiosis, abandonment and revenge (matricide!) through filmic scenes, fleshy movement, and a play with visibility. Do we (need to) kill our mothers to become adults?
The piece is performed by French dancer/performer Marion Bosetti (WArd/waRD) and Dutch dancer/choreographer Doke Pauwels. The original soundtrack was composed especially for this piece by Marnix Dorrestein (whoisix).
