Pan, God of the Wild, travels to the Ocean to dance with a pearl – a freakish hyper-object from a post-natural age.

The second part of a twin production exploring themes of civilization and nature, Mother of Pearl honours the dismantled natural world sacrificed in the name of human progress and reorients the extracted body in vast landscapes, domestic and wild.

In this new experimental circus production, physically refined bodies perform exceptional but abnormal gestures of human beauty and skill, becoming a geological art-form with the body as a landscape to be cultivated.

Mother of Pearl is the artist’s big red erection for the world, invoking its inherent vitality and freedom in an expression of creative wildness that refuses to be tamed.
