The College of the Arts welcomes Community Partner Portland Institute for Contemporary Art.

 

In GERMINAL, French artists Halory Goerger and Antoine Defoort create one of the most talked-about recent works of contemporary international theater. Both whimsical and deeply philosophical in approach, GERMINAL asks: if we had the opportunity to start the world from scratch, how would we do it? As this sometimes absurd and humorous creation tale unfurls, characters invent telepathy, question physics, construct new rules for social engagement and dream up language. GERMINAL smartly dismantles the conventions of theater into a metaphor for human evolution and employs the stage as a fruitful open space where new worlds are up for the making.
