In “Minor Planets,” five performers work to make sense of themselves and their relation to each other as they traverse an impoverished landscape of detritus, wooden planks and fabric scraps. Using these inadequate resources and locked in a decaying set of rules and mischievous games, the five negotiate a place for themselves, making and re-making the world they inhabit. Beginning initially with research into the Russian Revolution, Vlatka Horvat’s “Minor Planets” draws on her own experience of living through the breakup of Yugoslavia in the 1990s and its legacy of confusion and opportunism. Looking at how people deal with structural collapse, the piece also speaks to the broader landscape of uncertainty that marks current events. Created especially for “Utopian Realities,” “Minor Planets” is Horvat’s first full stage production.
