No Comet (premiere) by The Liz
Liz Korhan Erel
The Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) extinction event was a sudden mass extinction of three-quarters of the plant and animal species on Earth, due to the impact of a massive comet or asteroid approximately 66 million years ago. It has been speculated that had this event not occurred, certain dinosaur groups would have had the potential to evolve into intelligent beings.
For their newest production No Comet, the trio The Liz will create a piece of non-humanist speculative fiction, positing a world where the dinosaurs didn’t become extinct and are, in fact, highly sentient beings. As a species, humans tend to take for granted our place in the world, forgetting that evolution – that life itself – is predicated upon chance and contingency. In No Comet, The Liz consider these chance events and imagine other possible pasts, presents, and futures, in order to hopefully acquire a larger lens through which to view ideas of sapience and societies.
No Comet will be premiered on 8th & 9th October at 20h in Sowieso, Berlin as both a performance and installative dinosaur cafe “Saurwieso”.
Additionally, a complementary gallery-front video will run from 8-10 October, 18-23h at Sowieso and top e.V. (Schillerpromenade 4) in Schillerkiez.
