100

Photograpy by Darrin Zammit Lupi

Using the seasons of Summer and Winter as chapters, 100: Ave|Eva|Summer|Winter (2010) is a dark and surreal non-verbal visual theatre performance exploring the subjects of love and gender. The cast of five performers are presented with an array of highly stylized costumes and props.

100: Ave|Eva|Summer|Winter showcased at Dock One, in Malta, a reclaimed derelict dockside building that was originally built in 1848 by the British Forces and it was the largest dock available to the Royal Navy. The dock and the surrounding area at the time of the performance was underdevelopment as a part of a general trend towards the rehabilitation of harbour areas.

100 was an altogether very different performance to Rubberbodies’ first; much darker, yet one which also possessed a sense of the majestic coupled with a quasi child-like innocence… I leave Dock No. 1 with a gorgeous array of tableaus twirling around my head. Rubberbodies have once again managed to impart an experience unto their audience – one which is not easily forgotten.

This collective knows how to produce magic – not the Harry Potter – or the rabbit-out-of-the-hat-kind, but pure visual stimulation which seduces and remains impressed in one’s psyche.
