Big Art Group
Bay Area Premiere!
YBCA presents the Bay Area premiere of the always-provocative New York performance ensemble Big Art Group, a company that uses media language to push the narrative boundaries of performance, film and visual art. S.O.S. utilizes ten performers and a video matrix that inhabit a multi-camera, multi-screen installation. Inspired by the primal themes of the symphony/ballet Rite of Spring, Big Art Group creates its own contemporary rite of spring, using ordinary rituals of renewal that are abstracted and refracted though video. As these common actions morph into metaphors of war and environmental breakdown, a larger discussion emerges of sustainability and its daily practices. S.O.S. explores futureness, survivalism, revolution, ritual and sacrifice with this question in mind: “Can sacrifice create a new beginning?”
