Soil Desire People Dance
Soil Desire People Dance is an ongoing serial performance by Mark Sussman and Roberto Rossi of Great Small Works in New York.

Inspired by the poetry and prose texts of the writer W.G. Sebald, whose work reflects on what Susan Sontag calls, "that complex fate, being a European at the end of European civilization," the current episodes are taken from Sebald's After Nature, published posthumously in 2002. The through-line concerns the persistence of material objects through the passage of history, narrated from the point of view of displaced object-manipulators attempting to reconstruct a lost world from surviving fragments and discovering the extent to which much of human history is lost to us.  Soil Desire People Dance is a fusion of low-tech and tactile with real-time video processing.

Created & Performed by Mark Sussman and Roberto Rossi of Great Small Works  with Jesse Orr and Max Kelly
Based on W.G. Sebald's After Nature
