extermination was developed at Chunky Move Studios under the Maximised Program, in late 2003, and was performed at Dancehouse in August, 2004.
extermination is a meditation on Jean Baudrillard’s book “Symbolic Exchange and Death”; on bodies that are models, robots, animals, corpses; on heavy metal, Motörhead and Slayer; on clothes, costumes, makeup, underwear, and shoes, and every kind of bad behaviour; On Goya and Disasters of War, the death of God, the end of civilisation; on bodies beyond morality, betray, seduce, kill, undress; the collective insanity of delinquent groups filled with indescribable euphoria, an out-of-control blindness.
