'Germinale' was a 'Living Scarecrow' commission first created as part of the Seed Journey Project by the Future Farmers for Kaspar Wimberley of The Morning Boat, produced by Art House Jersey. It was performed at Hamptonne Country Life Museam at the Spring Equinox. The inspiration for the piece came from the 4 seasons and their cyclical nature, our relationship with the land and our need to maintain this knowledge. The gestural movements reflect the farming behaviours and weathers of each season. Influences include The French Republican Calendar of 1793, Pina Bausch's Nelken Line, the Kibbo Kift, the Ballet Russes, Sufi Dervish and the Matisse chasubles.
The performance will take around 15 minutes.
