Stones & Bones

For their latest piece, Stones and Bones, RootlessRoot worked with the English sculptor Peter Randall-Page to create a performance about the transience of human existence. White marble – a material with metaphysical dimensions that constitutes the bedrock of European civilization – lies at the core of the work, even though its natural place lies inside majestic mountains, far outside theater convention.

In “Stones and Bones”, five female performers – dancing to an original score by Vassilis Mantzoukis – carve out a poem about the fragile nature of human existence and the need to leave our mark on the world.
