Inspired by the story of the super-prophet Jonah (old testament), Baleen focuses on the concept of “loop/karma/cycle-recycle”, from the simple pulse to the complex feedback, translated on stage in hijacked everyday-objects (like turntable, carousel, smoothie machine, etc...). This work is also a fascination for the anthropomorphic sounds (a saxophone or a balloon can sound like animals or fish such a whale). A point of view from the book Jonah can rejoin us today, it is this death drive tendency : the secret wish, to the destruction of the city/humanity. Looking at the current impact of humans amongst the environment, we create an ecological tale where plastic bags are seen as creative instruments, not as a secret massive destructive weapon.
