‘FERAL’ is a series of four contrasting stage-landscapes designed by the dancers themselves. The stage changes from a void, to a dump, to a synthetic desert and finally a horizon. The performers transform from screaming, deviant figures to lifeless, hollowed-out surfaces. Lydia McGlinchey developed different textiles for the scenography, with a particular eye for texture and different volumes and perspectives.
This work invites the audience to observe the transformation of each landscape. During the process of creating this piece, a lot of thought went into how repetition and the presentation of bodies and places can affect the relationship with the individual and a group. This is why there are depictions of corrupt, filthy, excessive, toxic, monstrous, ruined, broken landscapes as well as glamorous landscapes. The work is called ‘FERAL’ for a reason.
It shows the potential of theatre to create an experience of suspension as opposed to instruction.
