Since the first time we met and started making work as a company, we've been asking ourselves and the world: who is the wild duck? What is it to be savage? WILD DUCK is a multimedia exploration of the act of seeing, epistemology of being, and the nature of the theatrical spectacle. Can we imagine up a way of seeing beyond a dialectic of fantasy and life? Our project is to prophesize about presence without a hard boundary of self; to love, by becoming each other through a language of madness. This work is also an ongoing metaphor and literal laboratory for the mad weather of our 3-year collaboration. Jump into the depth of the sea with me, lose yourself in the attic with me.
