Five authors tell a story of moving mountains. An unexpected event complicates the narrative. They decide to give it another try. To move a mountain is to attempt the impossible. Guided by a choreography of attempts the Marble Crowd will unfold their version of events through movement, storytelling and fantastic images.
The mountain is a tectonic encounter, an assemblage of minerals, animals and litter, a place where people meet to seek the highest and also just a really big rock collection.
The vastness of the task serves as a backdrop for collaborative experiments where bodies, things and materials come together in a series of encounters. Each encounter a chance to make a decision, to make a scene and to make sense of it all.
