The World is Flooding

Oreet Ashery: Group performance, Tate Modern, Turbine Hall, Saturday 12 July 2014, 17.00 – 18.30

The World is Flooding is a performance based on Mystery Bouffe, a play by Mayakovsky, written in 1921 for the anniversary of the 1917 Russian revolution. Over several months artist Oreet Ashery worked with a group of participants to write, produce, and direct a performance. The elements of the performance are influence by Russian futurism, including Malevich’s set designs for Victory Over the Sun and Zaum poetry.
