Review of Germinal Sep 26, 2014

As GERMINAL began last night, the woman behind me alarmingly whispered to her date, “What is that man doing?!”

I wasn’t sure which man she was referring to - the one crumpled in a lump on the side of the stage or the one distractedly directing a psychedelic light with an oversized remote control. Eventually, all four performers stood up and began to silently communicate via text messages projected on a large wall. Texting? Yeah, we do that too. The nervous audience laughter slowly melted away.

Silly Putty becomes a Thing! Sep 26, 2014

Four errant spirits becoming self aware within the vastness of space, extend their newly discovered powers of creation, test the limits of cause and effect, take a few wrong turns and finally reach the commonwealth of harmony, literally; all enacted with the blithe nonchalance and wry, mater-of-fact composure reserved for a very french epiphany. Adult in the delivery while steeped in childlike wonder.

"...we wanted to break the stage, literally break it" – an interview with Defoort and Goerger Sep 24, 2014

In GERMINAL YOU REINVENT THE UNIVERSE, NO LESS! HOW DID YOU MANAGE TO WORK WITH SUCH A VAST BASIC PREMISE?


It was a crazy gamble. We imagined starting all over from scratch, organizing a finite universe consisting of only four people on an 8m by 10m stage. Those four people would grow and mature according to a somewhat Darwinian logic, like a theory of evolution pushed to the limit.
