Waiting for the Apocalypse
by Sarah Patterson
We recognize “apocalypse” to mean an event of catastrophic damage but the word's root means to uncover or reveal. A collage of images and sounds reflect the layered etymology of the word. When the countdown begins, are we waiting for an unveiling or destruction? Credits: The songs “Arrival” and “Opening” by Bjarke Niemann are used in the collage.
The Horror Story of 2020
by Caroline Wilkes and Voni Kengla
When grandma has to babysit, the kids insist that they can’t go to bed without a story. The scariest stories are ones that have actually happened. And for us the story of 2020 is the scariest of all.
All Delighted People
By Carmen Burbridge and Erin DiIorio
This movement piece, set to “All Delighted People” by Sufjan Stevens, uses touch, motif and symbolism to explore shifts and power dynamics within relationships.
I'll Love you 'til the End of the World
By Jazmine Villalino and Ellie Conniff
What’s worse: the end of the world or a broken heart?
Additional Apprentice Performances:
By Ronald Sigeca and Charmaine Chisamba
This piece is based on our values and what we stand for having been born in Zimbabwe. We take pride in our songs, they bring out the aspect of life and Unity. The songs we used are from a group called *IYASA* from Zimbabwe.
