Can we ever know what will come to pass? Can an act of prediction bring the future into being? Reading the runes and crunching the data, award-winning artists Emergency Chorus delve into the ways we forecast, calculate, sense, predict and prophesy the future.
Ways of Knowing comprises two distinct halves; mirror images of each other, presented back to back. Part one, All the Barometers in the World, looks up to the skies in anticipation of a storm. Part two, The Spelunkers, follows a pair of explorers as they journey underground.
An intricate system of detailed choreography, found text and live sound, the work unfolds like a mysterious series of visions and omens. Behold! A council of leeches, a mystic hermit, a Victorian inventor, an economics conference, a dark and dripping cave.
Following their acclaimed shows Landscape (1989) and CELEBRATION, Emergency Chorus return to the stage with the premiere of a strange and cloudy choreography, caught between certainty and uncertainty, knowing and unknowing
