A teaser to tease you into a Jungle, a serie of blinks
Creation 2021 by K&A
A f(r)iction documentary of the now, the future will jungle the savage ones. A dance performance that tracks down the transforming migration of two wild ones: The zebrA & The sharK.

Jungle the future is the science-fiction journey of a humanised zebra and shark that escape their desertic habitants to settle in cement territories: our cities. In the heart of a metropolitan, in the middle of its grey neighbourhouds, they confront the rites & customs of humans. In an effort to blend in they eat cigarets, dress-up in the corners, get drunk on salt & gallop on rollers. The scandalous dream of the zebrA-lexandra Bellon, and of the sharK-arla Isidorou, is to integrate into the human society. The audience, as if visiting a zoo or a crime scene, stays safe behind two expanded lines. They witness their strugles, nostalgia, dreams for a better life and irresistable stamina of trying again.
Their movements unfold between savage animalistic trance gestures & wacky odd human actions. “Jungle the Future” is a m-Ask s-How, that questions the relationships we have with animals, urban and wild territories: BORDERS, ORDERS, OTHERS. All seems to be going well until a twist pushes the story over the line. What if these voluntarily domesticated animals, would domesticate us? Who is on which side of the zoo? “Jungle the Future” is
a children show for grown ups to insert a doubt into their brains: Do I wear a mask?
Jungle the future to offer your mind provocative wild spaces & species.
SharK: “You gotta keep moving (I am well casted).”
ZebrA: “We are the primitive puppets of our own masks (I read in between the lines)”
