UN-BEER SONATA

LIVE PERFORMANCE, 2010

HUNGER FOLLIES

CHICKEN PIECE

HUNGER FOLLIES – Scratch #1 is a critical statement addressing the problem of deforestation in the Amazon Forest, where extensive areas are burned to cattle ranching for meat exportation.

 

The performance starts with a pre-recorded sound performance played in the movie theater in black out. When the house light goes on, the audience is confronted by the image of the performer with a cattle head skull, walking in the theater aisles silently, while offering the spectators raw meat on a white porcelain plate.

 

This performance was created to be presented at the intermission of the New Filmmakers Series – Latino at the Anthology Film Archives, in New York. Its concept was initially sketched in 2005.
