Part I: The Dinner / Part II: The Nightcap
An eco-paleo-psycho-electro-cosmo talk
Taking inspiration from table settings specific to the paintings of Dieric Bouts, Domingo sets a table consisting of a specifically curated array of hand-sculpted tableware and objects that symbolically refer to the religious morale and redemption exercised within biblical times. Through interconnecting topics relatable to the morale with topics more applicable to our present-day zeitgeist, they look for overlapping themes that unravel around the intimacy of the dinner table. During their residency program in Off the Grid, Domingo focuses on the potentiality of character building and narration through the method of scriptwriting. As part of this research a scripted performance will be played out in two-fold.
Part I: The Dinner [played at Casco, November 16th — 19:00]
Takes on the familiar setting of a dinner, unravelling a tale through a scripted dialogue referring to topics surrounding gender biases, jealousy, confession, redemption and betrayal.
Part II: The Nightcap [played at STUK, November 16th — 22:20]
As the night proceeds and the table is cleared, the fire of drama takes over. What remains is a mere conglomeration of muddled egos and the aftermath of overspoken words and open ends.
