Thirty-three mini scenes, a revolving set of players, roving live percussion, edible props and continually shifting roles: The Seed Eaters is a performance by Emily Mast that I have written the text for. It unfolds as a series of sculptural sets, accompanied by stylized scripts and choreographed gestures that any three people can perform.
Thirty-three mini scenes, seventeen installations, six performances, roving live percussion, edible props and continually shifting roles: The Seed Eaters unfolds as a series of sculptural sets, accompanied by scripts about the idea of "The End" that any three people can perform. A meditation on order and hierarchy, The Seed Eaters creates and holds a space where language, objects, instructions, and participants' personalities have equal value, if only for a moment, before starting over.
