“In 50 years the oceans could contain more plastic than fish”
Debris is an illustration of an ongoing battle in the worlds oceans. A battle beetween “the big blue” and the newest spieces in her water –
plastic. From the raw materials in the production process, to product and waste.
Dance blends with acrobatics, classical music mixes with electronic beats and dead material meets nature.
In Debris, performed solely by Holmström, a piece of plastic takes on a sublime, airy quality as she dances with it. The piece is about the beauty of the ocean, which is becoming suffocated by plastics, and indeed we genuinely become worried for the dancer as she becomes more and more entangled in it. But the emotion that lingers is the one of sadness that we see in the long, still moments on the dancers face.
