COLLAPSE-copy is a stand-up performance about plastic – a material that has gone from fantastic to disaster, from comedy to tragedy, from high culture to boundless waste. The performance is based on Holm's own consumption and recycling, as well as a diary of plastic kept since September 2015. She blends in with the plastic in this heaven- and ocean blue landscape where environmental, geopolitical, and socioeconomic consequences are addressed using a humorous approach.
A Tyrannosaurus Rex made from plastic is in fact a real dinosaur, not just in play, but for real. Because plastic is a biomaterial that may stem from dinosaurs. It takes millions of years to make crude oil. From our time in history and dating back to nature, plastic passes through both people and animals in the form of tiny bits and micro-particles, doing things that we have not yet figured out. But the amount of waste keeps piling up.
COLLAPSE-copy premieres at Chat Noir and will be presented on the set of criminal comedy The play that goes wrong – as a political comment to the struggle for resources and space, a kind of public private collaboration, where she audaciously distributes and recycles.
Ingvild Holm is an artist, Research Fellow, and former member of contemporary performing arts group Baktruppen. Together with colleague Trine Falch she recently presented the critically acclaimed production Draum om Våren, a satirical piece about a train ride to China where representatives from the Norwegian commercial and cultural sectors are on a mission to please the Chinese after awarding the peace prize to Liu Xiaobo.
