In the performance Early Ripen Early Rot the body is the material subject to decomposition. This performance, performed by a sole dancer and two musicians is also a journey which takes the audience through a physical landscape; we ar witnesses to a body attracted to decomposition. Contemporary culture in general is leaning towards consumerism. This trend is almost a religion: the belief in self destruction. This performance can also be viewed as an embodiment of all sensations which contradict self-reliance. Early Ripen Eraly Rot premieredat the Dutch festival Springdance Hollandin April 2010. The performance was created through the support of th project ChoreoDrome at The Place, a residency at the La Caldera and supported by Goethe Institute in Barcelona, together with The Performance Space in Sydney, Australia.
