All In A Sudden Symphony is a succession of performance-tableaux that explores the cliché conception of matrimony; a constructed image that questions genre stereotypes as granted institutions. The monument becomes enigmatic and the ritual as well: a source of fear, like a broken fairy tale.
In pushing the limits of subversion onto well-known territory, we participate in an analysis of the human condition - between embarrassment and shame, thrilling happiness, derisory cynicism and politely accepted unease.
The scenes could remind us of a music video, an ad for a multinational, a video game or eye-catching military recruitment spot
