Video: Pil & Galia Kollectiv at Conway Hall Humanist Centre

by Pil & Galia Kollectiv on 6 March 2007

The Israeli artist duo who refer to themselves as the Pil and Galia Kollectiv, in particularly reverential Modernist mood, presented 'Asparagus: A Horticultural Ballet' on stage at the Conway Hall Humanist Centre, in Holborn last week, in collaboration with musicians Les Georges Leningrad. Well attended, the programme was a three act, asparagus costumed dance that moved methodically through a series of moves for different numbers of the vegetable cast. The programme makes claim to the ballets basis on Marx's Das Capital (as Lali Chetwynd did recently in her vegetable performances - something in the zeitgeist?). Make sense of this how you will with the video presented below.
