Pink Mama Τheatre’s twelfth dance theatre production explores the themes of individual and mass relation and identity through research into colonialism.
Combining dance, theatre and storytelling, Jungle is the surreal yet sensual story of four characters striving for survival and seeking refuge in a re-imagined post-colonial world. A world threatened by a new leader and a world in which your actions affect and infect everyone and everything surrounding you.
Dance Days Chania Summer Performance
Jungle follows the journey of four figures: Billy, an injured American soldier; Carmen, a Venezuelan transwoman; Teresa, a lost missionary; and Vicky, a British feminist. The ambiguities of each figure could represent an entire nation or an individual being. Together and alone the four threaten, destroy, suffer and surrender to the idea of being in control or be controlled.
With the experimentation of world music and contemporary electronic musical scores, the characters are driven to dance to their death and give meaning to their unique place in this post-colonial infected world.
