Choreography: Shay Kuebler
In Aristoteles’ "The Art of Rhethoric", epilogos is defined as the point in a speech where a speaker attempts to evoke an emotional response in the audience. The performance Epilogos is built around the art of the rhetoric and the commercialisation of morality. The movement vocabulary of the work evolves from a mix of theatre, dance, martial arts and the interaction of these elements with video and live sound. In Epilogos all the performance elements are generated by a single character “the orator”. This character acts as a catalyst for the entire piece, whereby the performance itself is already promotion, propaganda or a something to believe in.
