Laura Bruce

The Snowflake and Bubble Dance

A play with image and sound: Bruce shows a man in a winter forest landscape walking from tree to tree and trying to shake the snow from the branches. In the background we can hear Edvard Grieg’s In the Hall of the Mountain King. The already strange and pointless activity of the man is further accentuated by the orchestral music. It takes on a ceremonial character and thus tilts increasingly toward the absurd as he walks further and further away from the camera.
