A game of consumption, hoarding, holding on and refusing
3.17 million tons, that is the insane amount of garbage collected in Belgium every year. What part of that huge figure is necessary and what is downright wasteful? Canadian performer Liz Kinoshita is intrigued by this question and by the way this issue weighs on us physically, mentally and emotionally.
In 'You Can't Take It With You', Kinoshita explores what we need to survive in a sustainable manner. Along with three performers, she makes our behavior palpable and tangible, and translates the consequences of our everyday actions to the stage. Repetitive musical mantras and fast improvisations create a game of consumption, hoarding, holding on and refusing. Kinoshita emphasizes the opportunity we all have: we can change our behavior and reduce the weight of waste in our lives.
Liz Kinoshita graduated from P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels. She subsequently collaborated with ZOO/Thomas Hauert, tg STAN and Eleanor Bauer/Good Move, to name a few. At the invitation of Walter Verdin, she collaborated with Congolese theater-maker Ornella Mamba on the performance 'Article 0.0'. Liz is also featured in films by Danish artist Joachim Koester, and she teaches contemporary dance workshops and tours with the performance 'VOLCANO'.
